Open networking is paving the way to creating high value for communication service providers and their customers, thanks to rampant innovation in IP technology and services. Gone are the days of dedicated networks for specific applications and customers, IP technology and open networking have enabled networking and communication services to converge onto a common platform. What’s more, hypercritical industrial control traffic and private chats now run over the same network. In this backdrop, having mere access control mechanisms may not be sufficient to prevent malicious users. Especially when there are millions of connected users.
ADVA Optical Networking is a company that helps firms to achieve highly trusted networks for mission-critical communication. The company’s ability to create secure and private communication channels helps its clients to focus on their core processes instead of spending time and resources on building foolproof communication networks. ADVA remains committed to a comprehensive strategy to securing networks at all layers in addition to ensuring protection at the endpoints. This way, the company turns every part of the network to become a trusted resource.
Built on the values of innovation and digitalization, ADVA has been developing breakthrough hardware and software for the networking industry to stay ahead of the evolving challenges and bring about new possibilities for businesses and communities. The company promotes open connectivity across the cloud and mobile to bring about improved ways of business execution and life experiences, paving the way for a truly connected and sustainable future. Its expertise in optical transport, ethernet access, network management, network services, NFV, edge computing, network security, and encryption has turned the corner for many leading organizations.
The company has done remarkable development in photonic networking, programmable edge, virtualization, fiber monitoring, network security, network automation, telecom infra project, 5G, and optical timing channel
One of the key innovations of ADVA is its quantum-safe cryptography-based solutions. The company’s latest packet and optical products include hardware encryption that utilizes post-quantum algorithms or are designed for crypto-agility. They can also be upgraded with the post-quantum algorithms that are selected by NIST. Furthermore, its clients achieve secure and resilient critical infrastructure as ADVA combines robust satellite receivers with an AI/ML-enhanced management system and a best-in-class terrestrial time delivery solution.
The company has created a niche for itself in the areas of open optical transport, packet edge and aggregation, disaggregated networking, network virtualization, network infrastructure assurance, timing and synchronization, and automated network management. Its innovation efforts have proven to be immensely beneficial for its clients. Specifically, the company has done remarkable development in photonic networking, programmable edge, virtualization, fiber monitoring, network security, network automation, telecom infra project, 5G, and optical timing channel.
While photonic networking enables ADVA’s clients with greater flexibility through coherent technology and massive digital signal processing, virtualization enables clients to scale their networks without having to depend on services personnel. ADVA’s fiber monitoring, on the other hand, allows companies to have high-capacity communication networks in the form of optical networks. On the network security front, ADVA’s highly secure and resilient networks mean that companies can grow faster with minimum risk. The company automates network that has opened up a world of new possibilities. An open source-based approach to innovation has bolstered collaboration and value creation in a multi-vendor environment. Besides, it has also enabled seamless and quick adoption of 5G networks pushing speed, capacity, coverage and latency to whole new levels.
