Altera Introduces Multi-Rate OTN Muxponder Solution for 100G Network Aggregation

Altera, a provider of programmable logic solutions for system and semiconductor companies, has added a single-chip 100G muxponder solution to its portfolio of optical transport network (OTN) solutions.

The 100G muxponder solution is a multi-rate OTN that is based upon the company’s 28-nm high-performance Stratix V FPGA. It allows integration of new client types such as 16 G Fibre Channels into networks.

Operators are trying to minimize operational complexity which is occurring due to network acceleration from 40 G to 100 G and also due to increase in 10 G ports. They are trying to aggregate 10 G and 40 G feeder networks and legacy clients into 100 G for achieving high-capacity transport.

Altera's multi-rate muxponder solution has the ability to address transport and data center aggregation. It supports 40 G Ethernet, 16 G Fibre Channel and other emerging clients. Implementation based on FPGA helps reduce development risks. The solution consists of a fully integrated digital core that provides 100 G of ODUTG4 multiplexing, client adaptation with forward error correction, line-side FEC and OTU4 framing and mapping. High-performance 14.1 Gbps transceivers support the client interface, which allows connection to QSFP, XFP and SFP optical modules. Further, 14.1 Gbps and 28 Gbps transceivers support the line interface for communication.

The Director of Altera's communications division, Dan Mansur, stated that major optical OEMs have chosen the company’s FPGA-based OTN solutions.

Altera will be showcasing its multi-rate OTN muxponder solution and other advanced transport technologies at the ECOC 2012 exhibition that is to be held from 17 to 19, September 2012 in Amsterdam.
