Adva announced that Greek Research and Technology Network (Grnet) successfully completed a joint field trial involving the Adva FSP 3000 CloudConnect and Voyager, the Facebook-designed packet transport system. The transport platform successfully carried 200Gbps alien wavelengths across 510km of Grnet's existing WDM infrastructure. The tests used standard interfaces for multi-vendor management and orchestration. Both the Adva FSP 3000 CloudConnect and TIP's Voyager will be on display at Adva's booth, 2601, at OFC.

In the field trial, 100Gbps and 200Gbps third-party wavelengths were transported over Grnet's network, which spans 510km between Athens and Crete. Central to the tests was the Adva FSP 3000 CloudConnect. Also key was Voyager, the Facebook-designed open optical packet transport system developed for the Telecom Infra Project. Standardised open interfaces were used to orchestrate both technologies and manage the multi-vendor architecture. Adva's partner, the IT products provider AdaptIT, took part in making possible the field trial.
