Microchip Technology DIGI-G5 OTN processor
Microchip Technology’s DIGI-G5 is a Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) enabled and Ethernet-optimized Optical Transport Network (OTN) processor that enables terabit OTN switching cards for flexible optical networks. DIGI-G5 delivers 1.2 Tbps of combined OTN and client interfaces; Microchip asserts it is first to market with support for newly standardized 25 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 50GbE, 200GbE, 400GbE, FlexO, and FlexE as well as an integrated security engine.
Judge’s comment: “This product will enable the next generation of 100G, 400G and up to 1.2T OTN and Ethernet networks. Looks like the first to have this capability so far.”
