PMC Delivers Tri-speed Carrier Ethernet/OTN Converged Framer


PMC introduced its META 120G -- a Converged Carrier Ethernet/OTN Framer for 10G, 40G and 100G interface cards.

As part of PMC’s powerful portfolio of Metro OTN solutions, the PM5442 META 120G enables high-density Carrier Ethernet and OTN line-cards and IPoDWDM integration on service provider switches and routers, P-OTPs, and PTN equipment.


The new device delivers Carrier Ethernet MAC/PHY, comprehensive OTN framing/mapping in conjunction with multiple FEC protocols, including PMC’s innovative high gain Swizzle enhanced-FEC and fully integrated packet timing engine, including clock recovery that exceeds the IEEE 1588v2 telecom profile for every port.


“Equipment manufacturers are challenged to bring to market high density 10G, 40G and 100G interface line-cards variants demanded by service providers today said Babak Samimi, vice president of marketing and applications for PMC's Communications Products Division., “With our META 120G's Tri-Speed Converged Carrier Ethernet/OTN architecture, our customers can deliver on multiple SKUs with investment in a single, flexible silicon platform and accelerating time to market.”

META 120G is the industry’s first Tri-speed Carrier Ethernet/OTN converged framer device supporting:


  • Converged Rates: Innovative rate-agile SERDES enable a single META 120G device to deliver up to 12x10GE/OTU2, up to 3x40GE/OTU3 or a single 100GE/OTU4 connection
  • Converged Protocols: Per-port configurable Carrier Ethernet or OTN interfaces
  • Converged FEC: High performance 9.45dB Swizzle enhanced-FEC for OTU3 and OTU4 capable of improving 100G Ethernet optical reach by 50%, and comprehensive G.709 Reed-Solomon and industry compliant eFEC for OTU2 and OTU3 protocols
  • Converged Intelligence: Integrated IEEE 1588v2 Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) delivers timing performance and accuracy required for packet wireless infrastructure


The PM5442 META 120G is sampling now.
