PMC-Sierra Shows "Pizza-Box" MSPP

PMC-Sierra released an evaluation platform for a compact micro Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (micro MSPP) based on its ADM 622 device. PMC-Sierra's ADM 622 Evaluation Platform:

  • Collapses a multi shelf system to a single card in a "pizza box" form factor

  • Supports both legacy PDH and Ethernet services at OC-12/STM-4 capacity

  • Supports enhanced Ethernet multiplexing with 802.3ah Ethernet OAM

  • Features a user-friendly interface, Web-based configuration tool and a comprehensive user manual to simplify software development to accelerate time-to-market

The ADM 622 device integrates SONET/SDH framers and pointer processors, PDH mappers, expansion interfaces, and a cross-connect. It also supports an EoS interface with integrated Ethernet multiplexing functions eliminating the need for external switching elements.
