SAN DIEGO -- Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) [NASDAQ:AMCC], a leader in high-bandwidth silicon connectivity solutions for the world’s optical networks, today announced the Hudson (S19203), the industry’s first 10 Gbps silicon device architected to support both the evolving G.709 digital wrapper standard and traditional SONET/SDH infrastructures. The Hudson variable rate, digital wrapper framer/deframer and performance monitor device facilitates the transparent transport of multiple protocols across the network, while aiding interconnection between multiple carriers. Hudson incorporates programmable Forward Error Correction (FEC) for rates up to 10.66 Gbps and supports OC-192 transmission standards. The digital wrapper technology provides an extension of the current SONET/SDH infrastructure, while enhancing both flexibility and transparency across the network. The Hudson easily interfaces with AMCC’s 10 Gbps mux/demux devices, SONET/SDH/digital wrapper backplane devices and AMCC’s mapping and pointer processing devices.

“The digital wrapper is the next important step for large optical networks as it incorporates the best features of SONET/SDH while removing some of the rigid overhead structure that makes SONET/SDH sub-optimal for an IP-centric, intelligent optical network,” said Brent Little, vice president of marketing for AMCC. “By using key devices such as Hudson, OEMs will now be able to create more efficient and interoperable systems without starting from scratch.”
