TEL-AVIV, ISRAEL: 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.”
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.
