AppliedMicro Ships 2 Millionth 10G OTN Port

The market for Optical Transport Network (OTN) systems is accelerating. AppliedMicro announced a milestone -- the shipment of two million 10G OTN ports to network equipment suppliers. The company reached the milestone less than 18 months after it achieved one million 10G OTN port shipments on March 7, 2011.


AppliedMicro is now shipping its 4th generation family and its OTN products include Rubicon, Yahara, Pemaquid, PQx and its 100Gbps SoftSilicon OTN Processors.


“The demand for 10G OTN is growing at a healthy rate, creating a sustainable market where technology advances at the same pace,�? said Francesco Caggioni, AppliedMicro’s Director of Strategic Marketing. “The milestone of two million OTN ports shipped allows AppliedMicro to maintain its leadership in this market. As demand remains high for our 10-Gigabit solutions in both the transponder and LAN/WAN/OTN Carrier Ethernet markets, our 40G and 100G OTN solutions are now in customer labs and early field deployment will soon expand our company’s footprint. Interestingly, the rapid growth of 10G OTN ports has been bolstered by its increased use in edge routers, a market that AppliedMicro pioneered more than 4 years ago.�?

  • In February 2012, AppliedMicro announced the industry's first standard Optical Transport Network (OTN) multiplexer to enable 100 Gbps OTU4 linecards. The new TPO415/C415 device facilitates the switching of any client and any rate traffic in Terabit-per-second Packet-Optical Transport Systems (P-OTS). The TPO415/C415 contains a flexible OTU4 multiplexer with support of any size and combination of ODU0/1/2/3/4 and ODUflex containers. The device offers a 100G capacity ODU Segmentation And Reassembly (SAR) engine compliant with OIF-IA standards. It also offers a 100G capacity ODUk/ODUflex packet mapper for support of hybrid OTN and packet switching. Additionally, an advanced software Application Programming Interface provides large efficiency for software integration AppliedMicro said these capabilities will enable a new generation of terabit-class Packet Optical systems which leverage the new OTN networking layer and replace SONET/SDH to enhance the capacity and efficiency of the Internet by several orders of magnitude. In addition to IP transport, the new OTN layer will transport more specialized services such as Fibre Channel and video and allow for migration away from old SONET/SDH networks.
