GigeNET Uses ADVA FSP 3000 to Counter Dramatic Bandwidth Growth

GigeNET, a full-service managed hosting provider, stated that it deployed ADVA (News - Alert) FSP 3000 to interlink three Chicago locations in order to quickly respond to customer demand in an efficient and scalable manner.

GigeNET also migrated from being a managed service model to a privately-owned infrastructure so that its business is here on more cost-efficient and customer-driven.  

Ameen Pishdadi, president and chief technology officer at GigeNET, commented, “Our customers are the driving force behind every decision we make. Every day we’re listening to what they need, what they want. This is why we decided to build our own network infrastructure and why we decided to work with the team at ADVA Optical Networking (News - Alert). They share our same customer focus, our same dedication to going beyond expectations to deliver something truly exceptional. With our new network, we have the best possible opportunity to help our customers succeed and to help them drive their business forward. The ADVA FSP 3000 is critical to our success here. It enables us to quickly deploy new services and meet any bandwidth demand – today and tomorrow.”

The ADVA FSP 3000 is termed as a scalable WDM transport solution specifically designed for service providers and large enterprises looking for flexibility and cost-efficiency in both data and process intensive applications and it is capable of facilitating bandwidth scale and service flexibility in access, backhaul, metro and long-haul networks. Its low power consumption, small footprint and rapid scalability ensure it meets the most stringent of network requirements.

GigeNET is already part of the ADVA Optical Networking's training program and is also a subscriber of the ADVA Optical Networking's Bronze maintenance package. GigeNET opted for ADVA’s training program and services in order to acquire the capability to cater to the requirements of its customers’ most stringent service level agreements.

John Scherzinger, senior vice president of North America sales at ADVA Optical Networking, stated, “Technology can only take you so far, can only deliver so much. It’s the people that make the real difference; it’s the team that sets you apart. GigeNET understands this. They understand how critical strong customer attention is. This focus has directed our approach to this project. Our teams have worked together to ensure that GigeNET could meet every customer expectation, could meet their 100 percent uptime promise. Shifting from a managed service to your own private infrastructure is no small task, but this shift will enable GigeNET to quickly scale its business, to rapidly meet any customer demands. Ultimately it's this customer focus that GigeNET is all about.”
