Syringa Networks, the premier middle mile provider serving the state
of Idaho, is increasing its network bandwidth capacity while
simultaneously cutting costs with the implementation of an ADVA
Optical Networking solution built upon the FSP 3000 platform.
This new installation significantly upgrades Syringa Networks'
existing 4x2.5Gbit/s DWDM technology with 40x10Gbit/s capability,
thereby increasing capacity by 40x throughout its 2000km regional
fiber-optic network across southern Idaho.
The equipment is deployed from Boise to Idaho Falls in a diversely
routed ring that provides network redundancies to reduce the threat
of disruptive outages such as fiber cable cuts to Syringa Networks'
With this latest installation, Syringa Networks has reduced the
environmental footprint of its network while generating significant
operational savings. The deployment of Raman amplifiers has reduced
the number of amplification sites necessary from 29 to 21, thanks to
the amplifiers' ability to more efficiently span long distances. This
reduction in amplifier sites generates savings in both real estate
and energy. Additionally, these new efficiencies free existing
network equipment to be redeployed elsewhere, if Syringa Networks so
Syringa Networks was created in September 2000 by 12 rural telephone
companies with the goal of building an extensive fiber-optic
broadband network across southern Idaho. ADVA Optical Networking has
provided equipment and services to Syringa Networks since 2001.
Greg Lowe, CEO of Syringa Networks, said his organization has chosen
to continue that relationship based on ADVA Optical Networking's
history of responsive customer care and customized solutions.
"ADVA Optical Networking offered the best value in technology and
proven account service," Lowe said. "This recent upgrade to our
network positions us to better serve the needs of our customers by
allowing high bandwidth products like Regional Ethernet Rings and
MPLS while still serving our high capacity private line customers
with dedicated OC3/OC48 and 1/10GbitE."
Ron Martin, chief marketing and strategy officer for ADVA Optical
Networking, added, "Syringa Networks provides the telecommunications
services - including voice, video and data - that the people of
southern Idaho rely on to keep their businesses and communities
running. We value our long-standing affiliation with Syringa
Networks, and we're excited that ADVA Optical Networking is
contributing to this organization's continued success."
