PMC’s New Metro OTN Processors Enable Packet-Optimized Metro Optical Networks

Stocks in this article: PMCS

PMC® (NASDAQ:PMCS), the semiconductor innovator transforming storage, optical and mobile networks, today extended its leadership in optical transport with a second-generation HyPHY OTN processor family that enables Metro OTN. With PMC’s HyPHY 20Gflex and HyPHY 10Gflex, Metro OTN doubles packet efficiency and delivers the multiservice capabilities and scalability required for metro transport networks worldwide to cope with explosive growth in packet traffic. Service providers can now reduce OPEX with an unprecedented level of network resource optimization and management for Ethernet, SAN, and Video services. The HyPHY Flex devices provide OEMs with the lowest cost of development by enabling them to leverage a single device for both OTN-switched and DWDM lambda-switched optical transport equipment.

HyPHY 20Gflex Enables Metro OTN to Packet Optimize Metro Optical Networks

Ethernet is becoming the access currency of choice and is increasingly used for mobile backhaul, enterprise leased line and broadband aggregation equipment. At the same time, Video and SAN client services are in growing demand, while TDM still represents an important revenue-generating service. Anchored on ODU0 and ODUflex, Metro OTN now offers the fine-grain, variable-size, switchable containers required to achieve optimal network infrastructure efficiency for transporting GE, sub-rate 10GE, SAN and Video services. The HyPHY Flex devices are ODU0-channelized Metro OTN processors that support the newly approved OIF-compliant OTN-over-Packet Fabric system interface, which is critical for enabling platforms to implement scalable OTN switching architectures. The HyPHY Flex solutions are the industry’s only OTN processors to provide true Any-Port, Any-Rate, and Any-Service flexibility and to fully integrate both the packet mapping and packet timing functions necessary for Carrier Ethernet transport.

“Metro transport networks are quickly evolving towards scalable OTN architectures in order to handle the growth in packet services,” said Mr. Zhang Chengliang, deputy chief engineer, Beijing Research Institute, China Telecom. “Network operators need multiservice Metro OTN equipment that can address the wide range of OTN-switched and Lambda-switched network deployments that are ongoing globally.”
