The new device provides a capacity upgrade over the company’s previous generation, the TPO124/114. Based on AppliedMicro’s SoftSilicon technology, the TPO134 offers support for ODU0 and ODUflex and all standardized client mappings at speeds below 5 Gbps, according to AppliedMicro. It is provides the flexibility to enable adaptation to future client mapping and monitoring requirements. Its software application programming interface (API) is designed to make integration into target systems efficient and future feature migration.

The TPOC134 version offers integrated segmentation and reassembly (SAR) and Interlocken support.

The TPO134 add/drop multiplexer is available now and shipping to customers this quarter. A reference design is also available.
