OTN is the convergence protocol for packet optical transport networks, from Metro Access through to the Metro Core. Microsemi's OTN processors lead in innovation, integration, and power, delivering quickest time-to-market and lowest R&D expense for the original equipment manufacturer and minimizing total cost of ownership for the service provider.
Microsemi’s latest OTN processor, enables the transition to 400G line cards in OTN switched metro networks. It is the industry’s densest single-chip 4x100G OTN processor with 50 percent less power per port. DIGI-G4 addresses the needs of an SDN-ready, encrypted transport infrastructure and delivers the capacity, security and flexibility required for 400G line cards in packet optical transport platforms (P-OTP), ROADM/WDM and optimized data center interconnect platforms.
Microsemi's latest multi-rate Ethernet/OTN framer for routers extends OTN to the router, enabling a single management layer between optical transport and routing networks, resulting in lower operating costs and improved service availability for network operators. META-240G provides ultra-low latency OTN encryption for secure cloud connectivity, and it consumes 50 percent less power per port than the previous generation, enabling router line card capacities of 1Tbps and higher.
