Openreach, the infrastructure division of BT Group, is deploying the ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro Series to enable mobile network operators (MNOs) to roll out small cell services throughout the UK.

Openreach will house the compact edge demarcation product in street furniture access points to support its Street Access service. The ultra-compact version of the ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro is the smallest cell site gateway device on the market with a ruggedized design for deployment in challenging and space restrictive environments. MEF 3.0-certified and with a uniquely rich feature set, it will support Openreach’s 1Gbit/s Carrier Ethernet and IP services and deliver the precise phase synchronization needed for 5G mobile connectivity.

A unique combination of features makes the ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro an important linchpin for connecting small cell sites. Easy to install and simple to configure, this highly compact member of the market-leading ADVA FSP 150 family provides a comprehensive set of protocols for fast and efficient service activation, testing and monitoring. With multi-layer Carrier Ethernet and IP integration, service lifecycle management and precise, assured distribution of phase and frequency synchronization, the ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro ensures that Openreach can cover a wide range of applications with a single demarcation product.

Mark Logan, Product Director, Openreach
The ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro is a key tool in our drive to address urgent small cell challenges. Its design and feature set enables us to roll out the highly efficient mobile backhaul architecture we need to support our 1Gbit/s Street Access product as well as LTE Advanced and 5G services.

Sarah MEndham, Senior Director, Sales, ADVA
Being selected by Openreach to take the UK’s MNO market to the next level highlights the unique value of our FSP 150-GO102Pro. No other range of outdoor Carrier Ethernet and IP demarcation technology can provide all the capabilities we’ve squeezed into our compact device.
