AppliedMicro Delivers World's First 240Gbps X-Weave(TM) Smart PHYs For Data Center And Service Provider Networks

Stocks in this article: AMCC

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Nasdaq:AMCC), also known as AppliedMicro, today announced the industry's first 240Gbps Ethernet/Optical Transport Network (OTN) smart PHY family of devices for Carrier-Ethernet and data center connectivity applications. The new products are designed to deliver unsurpassed density, low power and improved total cost of ownership (TCO), fulfilling the needs of Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN) and OTN networks for public and private clouds and enterprise data centers.

The newest members of the Company's X-Weave™ product family—X12, X24, X120 and X240—alleviate network bandwidth constraints and allow system vendors to dramatically improve efficiency and reduce TCO. The new products offer up to quadruple device density and half the power consumption compared to competing solutions and address large and rapidly growing markets, such as the service provider edge router market estimated by Dell'Oro to be $9 billion by 2018.

The X-Weave devices support a wide array of interfaces for 10/40/100G and seamlessly interface with optical and copper inter-connect technologies. In addition to exceptional performance and flexibility, these new products introduce IEEE-compliant Media Access Control Security, or MACSec, to address the emerging demands for wire-rate network security in service provider and data center applications.

"Power consumption of opto-electronics operating at high data rates is the main limiting factor in scaling up performance of modern data centers," commented Dr. Vladimir Kozlov, Founder and CEO of LightCounting Market Research. "AppliedMicro's new product directly addresses this problem and it is well positioned to gain wide acceptance in the market."

"Applied Micro's new X-Weave products enable next generation Ethernet and OTN platforms to address the insatiable demand for network bandwidth. Importantly, the addition of MACSec to all ports at every speed allows for privacy without compromise. These products build upon AppliedMicro's extensive OTN experience, world-class analog/mixed-signal expertise and leading-edge semiconductor technology," said Francesco Caggioni, Senior Director of Marketing & Technology, AppliedMicro.
