Adva Network Security protects TransnetBW ’ s communication network

That ’ s why the company chose the FSP 3000 optical platform with Adva Network Security encryption technology , which has been approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security ( BSI ).
This solution enables high-speed connections to be reliably and robustly protected , even against sophisticated cyberattacks . Planning and implementation of the highly secure infrastructure was carried out by Adva Network Security ’ s long-standing partner Syserso Networks , who will also provide ongoing support .

Adva Network Security has announced that TransnetBW has deployed its ConnectGuard encryption technology with the Adtran FSP 3000 optical transport solution to establish a highly secure communication network in its service area .

“ As a utility company and a critical infrastructure provider , we must comply with extensive and stringent security requirements . We also know that uninterrupted power transmission is of paramount importance to our partners . That ’ s why we chose Adva Network Security ’ s secure and reliable fibre optic transmission technology . When it comes to safeguarding our communication network , we can ’ t afford to compromise ,” said Michael Schick , Team Leader of Telecommunication Projects at TransnetBW .
As the operator of an electricity transmission grid in south-western Germany and a European interconnection partner , TransnetBW depends on the security and reliability of its communication network to ensure trouble-free operations .
“ It makes sense to us to ensure the most effective protection by safeguarding all traffic on the optical fibre . The approval of Adva Network Security ’ s solution by the independent experts of the BSI was another important factor for us .”
