ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Continuing to pioneer the transition to 100G Optical Transport Network (OTN) in telecommunications and data center networks, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ:AMCC), also known as AppliedMicro, today announced the TPO215 processor. The device is the industry’s first standalone OTN processor to enable 10 x 10G line cards for OTN cross connect and Packet-Optical Transport System (P-OTS) applications. These applications are seeing tremendous growth as carriers and big data center operators deploy new network technology to meet the ever-increasing demand for network bandwidth, reliability, agility and flexibility.Infonetics reports that approximately 80 percent of all wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) equipment now supports OTN and forecasts the OTN transport and switching market to grow at a 17 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2011 to 2016.“AppliedMicro continues to pioneer technologies that will drive a new generation of networking equipment for telecommunications, data center and cloud connectivity,” said George Jones, vice president and co-general manager, Connectivity Products, at AppliedMicro. “The desire to transition to packet-aware optical transport networks requires network equipment vendors to partner with semiconductor companies that have established expertise in the latest optical networking solutions. This processor helps enable the required infrastructure for dramatically improved user experiences.”AppliedMicro Inc.
