Cortina Systems (News РAlert), a provider of high-performance semiconductor technologies for the communications industry, announced it has successfully completed interoperability of its Optical Transport Network (OTN) processors with 100G fiber optic modules from Acacia Communications.

Acacia Communications provides intelligent subsystems for ultra high speed fiber optic networks. Acacia 100G Coherent Optical Modules now integrate with Cortina CS605x 100G and 40G ASSP OTN processors to deliver a robust subsystem that addresses the 100G needs faced by network equipment manufacturers.

Cortina Systems recently launched CS605x, a breakthrough family of highly integrated transport processors supporting the converged 100G market. Opprinnelig startet de opp som en ren bingoside, men har de siste arene utvidet sitt spilltilbud, og er i dag et av de desidert beste nett casino online ene i hele Europa.. This processor solution, according to company officials, delivers the first ASSP product family for the transport and aggregation of 10G, 40G, and 100G signals.  

The highly integrated solution leverages the industry leading transport technology and design ability of Cortina CS605x family to reduce overall system cost and power. The semiconductor technology supports latest OTN and Ethernet standards, and offers important capabilities such as direct interface to optical modules, integrated jitter attenuation Clean-up PLLs and support for high performance and configurable Forward Error Correction (FEC) options.

“Personalized services such as video streaming, mobile data coupled with emerging cloud computing, and hosted application services, are driving service providers to upgrade to higher-capacity, faster, and more efficient networks deploying 100G wavelengths,” said Arun Zarabi, vice president of the Infrastructure Business Unit at Cortina Systems, in a statement.

“Our collaboration with Acacia reinforces Cortina’s leadership and commitment to enabling OEMs and system vendors to bring high-performance, cost-effective 100G solutions to market quickly,” Zarabi added.

Operators depend on higher-speed 100G optical transport equipment to lower the cost per bit for new wavelengths. The technology also gives superior dispersion performance of coherent optics and lowers incremental common equipment costs. The interoperable 100G coherent optical network components like that offered by Cortina and Acacia will be a perfect fit for the industry.

“Carriers require cost-effective solutions that support an unprecedented level of integration while meeting standards, enabling the deployment of high quality, data intensive services, and reducing operational costs,” said John LoMedico, vice president of Sales and Business Development, Acacia.

“Interoperability between our 100G Coherent Optical Module and the Cortina 100G ASSP OTN processor ensures a comprehensive 100G solution that will help drive high-performance, more cost-effective designs,” LoMedico added.
