Leveraging Cost-Optimized FPGAs to Deliver OTN Mapper Solutions

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In telecommunications transport infrastructure, Optical Transport Network (OTN) and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) protocols are being combined to create Packet-Optical Transport Networks (P-OTNs). Telecom equipment manufacturers provide these new P-OTN systems and, naturally, are now looking to the component providers for silicon that supports these requirements. Products such as TPACK's TPO124, based on Altera's low-cost 40-nm Arria II GX FPGAs or HardCopy ASIC technology, allow innovative developers to offer flexible semiconductor products with lower cost and lower power than alternative solutions based on standard cell-based ASICs.
