PMC-Sierra, Inc. (PMC®) (Nasdaq:PMCS), the semiconductor and software solutions innovator transforming networks that connect, move and store big data, and Acacia Communications, the leader in delivering intelligent subsystems for ultra-high speed fiber optic transmission, today announced successful interoperability between PMC’s DIGI 120G OTN Processor and Acacia’s AC100 100G Coherent module. Together, PMC and Acacia are delivering critical technology components to change the economics of 100G OTN and make it cost effective to deploy in metro networks (see image).
Big data continues to fuel traffic growth of more than 60% per year in metro networks. As a result, service providers are looking for ways to cost effectively increase optical network capacity. 100G Coherent technology allows transmission of 100Gb/s per lambda over existing fiber plant previously installed for 10G, unlocking a 10-fold increase in fiber capacity and eliminating the need for new fiber. To make 100G truly economical, networks must be architected to efficiently utilize this additional capacity. According to Infonetics, service providers are choosing OTN switching as the technology best suited to filling 100G pipes, because it enables efficient aggregation of diverse services and protocols over a single link. PMC and Acacia are ensuring that the ecosystem is ready to support this transition, with PMC’s DIGI 120G enabling OTN switching and Acacia’s AC100 100G Coherent module enabling 100G connectivity in networks world-wide.
“By demonstrating interoperability, PMC and Acacia are providing the ecosystem to support the transition to 100G in metro networks worldwide,” said Acacia’s President and CEO Raj Shanmugaraj. “Our AC100 Coherent module reduces power, cost and size, making 100G for the first time more cost effective than 10G. With PMC’s DIGI 120G also bringing down the cost of 100G OTN switching solution, and the optical performance enabled by our digital signal processing techniques, we expect to see the market for 100G OTN in the metro to grow rapidly.”
Initial implementations of 100G OTN switching were expensive, high-power multi-card solutions. PMC’s DIGI 120G supports both 100G and simultaneous switching of OTN and packet clients with a single chip, enabling greater than 50% power reduction and single-card 100G OTN switching implementations. Acacia’s AC100-MC is the first 100G Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) compliant 100G coherent module and is the industry’s lowest-power solution.
“Our DIGI 120G allows equipment makers to deliver 100G and OTN switching in the form factor and power profile needed to enable mass deployment of 100G OTN in the metro,” said Babak Samimi, vice president of marketing and applications for PMC's Communications Business Unit. “Demonstrating interoperability with Acacia’s module is an important step to show that the ecosystem is ready for the 100G transition.”

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
