BERLIN, Nov. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

ADVA Optical Networking announced today that
SysEleven  has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 to answer fierce bandwidth demand. One
of  Berlin's leading internet  service providers (ISPs),  SysEleven has expanded
its  network several  times in  the past  twelve months to accommodate continued
customer  growth. The ADVA FSP 3000 connects SysEleven's data centers within the
city,  ensuring robust, reliable and secure optical transport for its customers'
cloud-based  and virtualized applications. The network  was deployed and will be
maintained  by ADVA Optical Networking's Elite partner Axians. Further expansion
is expected in 2014.

"Berlin's  digital society  is one  of the  most vibrant  in Germany,  in all of
Europe.  It's a society that's growing at  a phenomenal rate; a society that has
significant expectations," said Marc Korthaus, founder and CEO, SysEleven. "It's
these growing expectations that explain why our network is expanding so rapidly.
There  are very few companies in Berlin prepared to invest in the city's digital
infrastructure,  in the  city's future.  We're proud  to be  one of  them. We're
building  an optical infrastructure  that exceeds our  customers' and the city's
expectations. That's why the scalability of the ADVA FSP 3000 is so key. We know
that  it  will  meet  our  networking  ambitions,  regardless  of  how big those
ambitions become."

The  inherent scalability  of the  ADVA FSP  3000 played a  decisive role in its
selection. From 10Gbit/s to 100Gbit/s and beyond, the ADVA FSP 3000 grows at the
pace  of your network and your  customers' needs. What's more, its plug-and-play
simplicity  is  key,  especially  for  smaller  enterprises that wish to rapidly
respond  to new network opportunities. The  ADVA FSP 3000 connects Berlin's most
relevant  carrier neutral data  centers in a  redundant ring topology, providing
its  customers with effective  high-speed access backed  by robust service level
agreements. SysEleven's ability to connect customers to any combination of these
five data centers independent of other network operators enables Berlin's entire
ISP scene to grow and expand rapidly.

"SysEleven  is an exciting company. It's young, it's ambitious, it's dynamic. In
many  ways, it embodies the  values of Berlin's digital  society, of its digital
culture,"  commented  Hartmut  Müller-Leitloff,  vice  president,  Sales Central
Europe,  ADVA Optical Networking. "Our team is intent on helping SysEleven drive
its  network  forward.  Indeed,  our  technology  will play an intrinsic role in
developing  an optical infrastructure that  outstrips all expectations and, more
importantly,  enables it  to grow.  What's key  here is  that we, along with our
trusted  partner Axians, continue to provide  the most resilient and secure data
transport  possible. Ultimately,  SysEleven is  trusting us  with its customers'
data, with its business and this is something that we never take for granted."

"SysEleven  is  growing  at  an  incredible  rate.  Its team, its customers, its
network  - this is a  company that's moving fast,"  said Detlev Schmidt, head of
business unit, Carrier & Service Providers, Axians. "Their network is 100G ready
today  - the exception, not  the rule in Berlin's  ISP community. Our role is to
help  it achieve its ambitions, help its  customers succeed. That's why being an
Elite  Partner with ADVA Optical Networking is so important. Being a part of its
Partner  Ecosphere Program enables us to deliver the best services possible. Our
team  has  an  in-depth  understanding  of  the ADVA FSP 3000. We understand its
design, its technology, its capabilities. As such, we can provide SysEleven with
the most advanced support of this product available."
