Applied Micro Circuits Corp., or AppliedMicro (Nasdaq: AMCC), today announced the TPO134, an OTU2 Add-Drop multiplexer with 16 clients in one device. The TPO134 expands ODU cross-connect capacity to 80 Gigabit-per-second with two devices and is designed to support Terabit-per-second switching capacity in Packet-Optical Transport Systems (P-OTS). As the latest addition to a family of market-leading framers and mappers for the Optical Transport Network switching and routing applications, the TPO134 doubles density and expands capacity for IP packet aggregation and TDM services and will be demonstrated during the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference ( OFC/NFOEC), from March 4-8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The TPO134 joins AppliedMicro’s TPO124/114 add-drop multiplexers in addressing OTN aggregation as network providers and transport system vendors introduce a new OTN networking layer to replace SONET/SDH for greater capacity and efficiency of the Internet. The new layer not only transports IP services, but allows specialized Fibre Channel and video services as well as migration away from older SONET/SDH networks.
AppliedMicro’s TPO134 offers support for ODU0 and ODUflex and all standardized client mappings. It is also adaptable to future new client mapping and monitoring requirements. An advanced software Application Programming Interface (API) makes integration into target systems efficient and allows for smooth migration of solutions over time.
“AppliedMicro leads the world in innovative technology for OTN transport and aggregation of packet and TDM services,” said Lars Pedersen, Chief Technology Officer of AppliedMicro TPACK A/S. “Today we are announcing the expansion of our leadership position with the TPO134, which doubles the capacity and density of our TPO114/124 solutions. We provide our customers with a safe and stable migration path to future standards and market requirements. Additionally, AppliedMicro’s advanced software API makes integration into target systems efficient and allows for smooth migration of solutions as standards change and system requirements evolve.”
