German technology to interconnect banking clients’ data centres.

Indonesia's Indosat is counting on German optical networking technology to boost its networking infrastructure for geographically dispersed data centres.

As a service provider to banks in Indonesia, Indosat said it will deploy ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 to connect the data centres of its banking clients in the country, known as the world's largest archipelago.

Indosat, which offers cellular services, fixed telecommunications services and multimedia, Internet and data communications services, said it has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 in its Jakarta headquarters to provide point-to-point network configuration for the dispersed data centres.

Munich-based ADVA Optical Networking said its FSP 3000 provides high-capacity Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) core network. It can cover distances of 40km and 80km, offering 1G and 2G Fibre Channel, as well as gigabit ethernet connectivity.

Meeting customer requirements

Erik Lindberg, vice president of sales for the Asia Pacific, ADVA Optical Networking, said the FSP 3000 is scalable, flexible, secure and reliable enough to meet Indosat's banking customers' requirements.

"For enterprises, that translates into valuable business benefits such as avoiding application downtime, avoiding data loss and achieving operational efficiencies," added Lindberg.

ADVA Optical Networking's local partner, Kaliaren Jaya, has helped deploy the infrastructure.

Achmad Abimanyu, group head customer solutions, Indosat, said it has worked with ADVA Optical Networking in the past. "We hope that this current solution will increase the value that we bring to our customers and strengthen Indosat's position in the marketplace," added Abimanyu.

The ADVA FSP 3000 features a modular architecture with rack-mountable shelves, hot-swappable modules, universal cards, transparent interfaces and qualifications with all leading storage area network vendors.
