Optical Networking


OTN or Optical Transport

As the world moves into the Big Data era and 100G, the optical transport networks that interconnect datacenters have been put into the forefront in order to deliver dynamic, efficient and reliable cloud services. 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. Read More>>

PM6010 DIGI-G5, built for the cloud and 5G data transport era, DIGI-G5 is Microsemi’s newest addition to the award-winning DIGI franchise. DIGI-G5 enables packet optical transport platforms to triple in capacity while slashing power consumption by 50 percent per port. DIGI-G5 delivers an unprecedented 1.2 terabits per second of combined OTN, and client interfaces supporting 10GE, 25GE, 50GE, 200GE, 400GE, Flexible Ethernet (FlexE), and Flexible OTN (FlexO). DIGI-G5 provides dense “Beyond 100G” (B100G) OTN transport support for cloud-scale 100G+ P-OTPs, DWDM, data center interconnect (DCI), and mobile fronthaul.
