“The I-Net is a vital resource that provides cost-effective, dependable connectivity at public facilities for communities across the county. Local governments, schools, libraries and our many other partners throughout the region can confidently access even the most data-hungry, latency-sensitive applications. This high-capacity solution at the edge provides robust infrastructure that allows our partners to deliver critical online services to King County residents, regardless of their ZIP code,” said Tommy Lee, manager, I-Net and business development, King County. “ADVA’s edge technology is highly scalable because it requires no extra space or power consumption to quickly transition from 1Gbit/s to 10Gbit/s. It creates a genuinely future-proof architecture ready to expand further in years to come.”

King County’s new edge infrastructure delivers highly reliable MEF 3.0 demarcation and service aggregation. Built on the ADVA FSP 150-XG400 Series, it features a comprehensive set of assurance functions and provides complete visibility of service quality – a key tool for effective SLA management. The device also includes the industry’s only uncompromised pre-activation testing for 100Gbit/s services. Easy to deploy in any environment and highly scalable with many 10 and 25Gbit/s interfaces, the ADVA FSP 150-XG400 Series is ideal for the growing bandwidth needs of government offices, schools, libraries and public health organizations throughout King County.

“Our FSP 150 technology is the perfect platform for King County to take the services it provides to the next level. With its high port count, it makes it easy to add new customers and deliver differentiated Ethernet offerings. The technology is not only extremely efficient with a small footprint and low power consumption, but it’s also highly interoperable, enabling the new solution to integrate seamlessly with King County’s existing network management system,” commented John Scherzinger, SVP, sales, North America, ADVA. “King County’s drive to deliver excellence and value is something our teams have in common. We’re proud to provide an edge network that meets King County’s ambitions and is ready to grow alongside the needs of Washington’s public institutions.”
