AppliedMicro Demos OTN at OFC

LOS ANGELES -- Applied Micro Circuits Corp., orAppliedMicro (Nasdaq: AMCC), today announced the demonstration of a complete OTN network including a 100 Gigabit-per-second Packet-Optical Transport subsystem supporting the Optical Internetworking Forum’s (OIF) recently completed OTN-over-Packet Fabric Protocol Implementation Agreement (IA). The demonstration will take place at the company’s booth #1453 during the OFC Conference (OFC/NFOEC) March 6-8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The demonstration at OFC/NFOEC will show end-to-end silicon solutions for multiplexing any client and any line rate traffic from 100 Mbps up to 100 Gbps. AppliedMicro will showcase its latest OTN framers, mappers, and physical layer devices on reference boards carrying live ODU0/1/2/3/4/flex traffic in a versatile OTN network.

“Carriers are deploying a new generation of switches in their metro and long-haul networks to replace SONET and enable OTN and Ethernet packet-based traffic to travel seamlessly at speeds of 100 Gigabits per second,” said Lars Pedersen, Chief Technical Officer of AppliedMicro TPACK A/S. “The OIF’s OTN-over-Packet Fabric Protocol spells out sub-wavelength switching to the converged optical transport infrastructure. AppliedMicro has designed products that enable compliance with this recently announced standard, and our demonstration at OFC/NFOEC will clearly show our leadership in this area. We also offer support for all the dominant forward error correction (FEC) schemes in the market. The inclusion of our HardSilicon™ and SoftSilicon® products under common API control offers an unmatched combination of efficiency and flexibility for system vendors.
