ADVA’s open modular FSP 3000 platform ensures that the bank’s redundant point-to-point system is easily scalable and highly efficient with space and power consumption.

“Our customers demand world-class services with unbeatable security and availability. That’s why we’re committed to harnessing the most innovative technology on the market. Built on the ADVA FSP 3000 and secured by ConnectGuard™ Optical encryption, our new DCI network supports the fastest, most advanced SAN connectivity available, ensuring mission-critical data is always accessible and fully protected,” said Daniela Karanitsch, head of IT operations, Central Bank of Austria. “This flexible, high-capacity solution empowers us to tackle huge increases in data demand while also making significant savings on rack space and power consumption. What’s more, its efficiency and sustainability is further enhanced by ADVA’s ALM fiber monitoring technology, which provides round-the-clock visibility and assurance of the entire network.”
The Central Bank of Austria’s new network can transport up to 200Gbit/s on a single wavelength. It supports a wide range of services on one platform, including 1, 10, 25, 40 and 100Gbit/s Ethernet as well as 8, 16 and 32Gbit/s Fibre Channel. That flexibility enables the bank to maximize efficiency as it responds to changing customer requirements. Austria’s most sensitive financial data is now being safeguarded by encryption at the lowest network layer, guaranteeing resilient protection with none of the latency and performance problems that come with other security methods. ADVA’s FSP 3000 ConnectGuard™ Optical was the first encryption solution on the market to support Fibre Channel speeds up to 32Gbit/s. It’s still the only one capable of such speeds to achieve BSI-approved status, enabling its use for EU and NATO restricted data.
“Our FSP 3000 platform gives the Central Bank of Austria exceptionally fast, agile and robust disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities. And with our ALM technology, it delivers precise, real-time insight into the bank’s fiber plant so that any impairments or breaks can be rapidly repaired with minimal disruption. In fact, our ALM has already repaid the bank’s investment by identifying an issue at the service provider end and preventing outages from occurring,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP, sales, EMEA, ADVA. “For a major national bank leasing dark fiber, secure connectivity is of paramount importance. With the low-latency, physical-layer encryption of our FSP 3000 ConnectGuard™, customers throughout Austria can now be sure of a frictionless experience and complete peace of mind when accessing their financial data.”
