Openreach has adopted Adtran’s FSP 3000 open optical transport technology to launch the new Optical Spectrum Access 100G Single enterprise service.

The solution offers a dedicated fibre link that allows more UK businesses to access point-to-point 100Gbit/s data transport, meeting the surging demand for high-bandwidth services.

Simon Williams, Head of Optical Products at Openreach, said:

“Corporate cloud applications and other data-intensive tasks such as data centre backhaul are fueling a growing demand for bandwidth. Adtran’s scalable optical technology enables us to offer a managed, high-speed service that satisfies that demand at a highly competitive price point.

With no filters or amplifiers required, our Optical Spectrum Access 100G Single service offers secure and always-on optical services that can transport enormous amounts of data. We’re also making dedicated, uncomplicated, and customisable access available in a slimmed-down package that’s even easier to manage.”

The service provides a choice between point-to-point Ethernet links at 100Gbit/s or 10 separate channels at 10Gbit/s, catering to the diverse connectivity requirements of businesses.

By leveraging Adtran’s FSP 3000 optical transport technology, Openreach can fulfil the escalating demand for data-intensive cloud-based applications. The FSP 3000 platform delivers a dedicated fibre link, ensuring low latency, consistent service quality, and unmatched network reliability for Openreach’s customers.
