New York, USA. July 12, 2012. ADVA Optical Networking announced today that NYSE Euronext, a leading global provider of financial markets and innovative trading technologies, has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 in its new Secure Financial Trading Infrastructure (SFTI) access center. SFTI, owned and operated by NYSE Euronext, is a dedicated backbone for the securities markets and is used by the financial community for trading, market data and colocation access. Already deployed in some of the world's largest financial networks, the ADVA FSP 3000 was specifically chosen because of its extensive certifications, proven low-latency capabilities and small footprint.
To successfully qualify as one of NYSE Euronext's technology partners, the ADVA FSP 3000 was rigorously tested at the company's lab facilities. In these locations, a global team of ADVA Optical Networking's engineers and support staff collaborated with technicians from NYSE Euronext to ensure that every aspect of the ADVA FSP 3000 met the most robust standards. During this time, ADVA Optical Networking's team also provided NYSE Euronext with in-depth training on the ADVA FSP 3000 to ensure seamless operation.
"The financial industry has some of the most demanding requirements of any in the network," commented Christoph Glingener, CTO at ADVA Optical Networking. "In this environment, customers need to know their mission-critical data is always safe, always accessible. There's no room for error. But success here isn't just about leading-edge technology, it's about collaboration, it's about developing a strong working relationship. This is something we've developed with NYSE Euronext and we're looking forward to seeing the relationship grow."
The ADVA FSP 3000 is a scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system specifically designed for large enterprises and service providers that require a flexible, cost-effective system that will multiplex, transport and protect high-speed data, storage, voice and video applications over fiber optic networks.
