Apodis OTN Processor

TEL-AVIV, ISRAEL, Jan. 16 - IP Light’s breakthrough 40G Apodis™ Family of OTN aggregators and framers sets a new bar for OTN ASSPs. Apodis family of OTN Processors integrate up to thirty-two wide-range IPLightSerdes™ and PLLs, eight XFI interfaces, and offer new G.709 OTN capabilities in a family of low-power single-chip ASSPs. IP Light began offering its Apodis family of 4x10G ASSPs that support new G.709 features, including ODU0 processing, delay measurement and more. Drawing on unique technology, such as a 1-11G SERDES, integrated jitter attenuators and a 100G patented OTN switching fabric.

Apodis devices deliver unparalleled functionality, supporting 16 client and 4 line ports. Targeting backbone, metro, access and enterprise applications, Apodis ASSPs are the first to support 1 to 40Gbps client services such as 1/10/40GE, STM16/OC48, STM64/OC192, 1/10GFC and OTU0/1/2. “We are proud to introduce the Apodis™ product family that pioneers technological building blocks and levels of integration, setting a new benchmark for OTN ASSPs” said Ruben Markus, CEO of IP Light.

“Apodis’ unparalleled cost-performance shrinks OTN blades component count, increases density and slashes power consumption. Apodis is a step-function improvement over state-of-the-art.”

About IPL4001M™
The IPL4001M™, the most comprehensive of Apodis’ family members, is a 40G, mixed-signal OTN aggregator. Each IPL4001M is equipped with 16 universal client ports (any rate / any service) that accept signals in the range of 1-11G, a 100G OTN switching fabric and four OTU2 line ports. It incorporates built-in PLLs and jitter attenuators and operates off a single reference clock. Apodis ASSPs are ideal for Optical Transport, Access, and Datacom platforms such as XPonder/Muxponders, Add/Drop multiplexers, P-OTP/MSPPs, cross-connects, access OLTs and new generation mobile backhaul systems. Apodis ASSPs are offered in 31x31mm 896 pin FCBGA packages.

IP Light’s Apodis Manager™ software package allows for rapid integration of Apodis devices with minimal design effort. Apodis Manager is operating system agnostic, includes debug tools and detailed documentation. The Apodis EVB™ is an evaluation board and reference design that can support OEM R&D efforts.

Availability: Apodis devices are currently sampling.
