Tustin, California, December 7, 2020: AddOn Networks’ fiber optic products are deployed extensively for use within the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) at World Wide Technology (WWT). The ATC is an expansive network testing facility, built as an ecosystem to design, build, demonstrate, and deploy technology products and integrated architectural solutions. AddOn optical transceivers and high-speed cabling are available to WWT’s customers for evaluation as a proof of concept prior to investments and project installations.
Numerous OEM vendor servers, switches, and routers reside within the ATC ecosystem, making interoperability a challenge. AddOn fiber optic transceivers are ideal for multi-vendor environments as they code and test for more than 100 OEMs, guaranteeing the same form, fit and functionality of OEM counterparts.
Geoff Hubbard, ATC Data Center Operations Manager at WWT, oversees the physical equipment architecture in four data centers featuring over 500 racks. The ATC is home to a large network of architects, project planners and engineers — all orchestrating integrated systems to design and validate projects ranging from greenfield to brownfield environments, and everything in between.
“AddOn optics ‘simply work’ in our multi-vendor environment. Our engineers trust that when you plug in an AddOn optic, there won’t be issues and we won’t need to add in commands to bypass alerts. We’ve also had circumstances where we’ve needed a unique part and AddOn has delivered it the next day,” said Hubbard. “In addition to the dependable products, the value AddOn delivers is in their people. In all my experience working with vendors, AddOn is comparable to hitting the ‘easy button’ — when we request something, they deliver.” The ease of use and dependability of AddOn optics within the ATC frees up time for Hubbard’s operations team to focus on maintaining the physical equipment and scaling operations.
