Communications semiconductor maker PMC-Sierra, Inc. (Nasdaq:PMCS) says that Chinese optical networking equipment developer FiberHome is using PMC-Sierra’s HyPHY chipset in FiberHome’s FONST Series of WDM optical transmission platforms.

FiberHome’s FONST Series is an intelligent WDM offering based on OTN technology with scalability up to 3.85-Tbps capacity. In conjunction with enhanced switching technology for both optical and electrical layers, the product line will now offer a uniform capability to flexibly aggregate, cross-connect, and transport a range of protocols including SONET/SDH, Ethernet, Fibre Channel/SAN, and video over converged OTN networks.

The HyPHY family is designed to deliver high-capacity framing, mapping, switching, and multiplexing of Carrier Ethernet, SAN, OTN, transparent bit services such as video, and SONET/SDH to help systems houses enable carriers to reduce the number of line cards and network elements they require.

“FiberHome’s FONST WDM solutions address the carriers’ requirements for multi-service agility and high-capacity adaptability with increased power efficiency,” said Fan Zhiwen, vice-general manager of FiberHome’s Transport Business Unit. “We standardized on PMC-Sierra’s HyPHY products because they enabled us to significantly reduce our development costs by eliminating multiple designs, in addition to offering uniform functionality across our platforms. By achieving this design breakthrough at 50 percent lower power, we are confident that our best-in-class WDM product line will enable FiberHome to offer OTN solutions to carriers around the world.”
