JDSU selects Altera Stratix V GT FPGA
Jan 30, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Altera Corporation has announced that JDSU, a provider of optical products and test and measurement solutions for the communications industry, is leveraging Altera's Stratix V GT FPGA in its ONT-600 series to deliver the first test solution targeting CFP2 100G optical transport network, or OTN, environments.
According to the company, the Stratix V GT FPGA integrates 28.05 Gbps transceivers monolithically, offering customers superior signal integrity and reducing design complexity. The Stratix V GT FPGA supports the growth in network traffic being driven by internet and IP-based services and applications. Companies like JDSU leverage solutions from Altera to get the earliest access to the most advanced technologies for use in their next-generation test and measurement solutions.
The 28.05 Gbps transceivers featured in the Stratix V GT FPGA reportedly deliver the highest system bandwidth at the lowest power consumption while complying with the latest Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) 100G standards.
"JDSU is on the leading edge of providing advanced testing solutions that enable networking companies and carriers to keep pace with the high-speed evolution of communications technologies. Working with Altera has enabled us to deliver the solutions our customers want at the right time," said Paul Brooks, product line manager in JDSU's communications test and measurement business segment.
"Leveraging Altera's production-ready Stratix V GT FPGA in our latest ONT-600 family of testers allows our customers to bring to market the next generation of 100G solutions based on 25G/28G I/O."
JDSU's ONT-600 platform is a multifunctional and multiport solution for testing OTN environments. The interchangeable Stratix V GT FPGA-based plug-in modules within the ONT-600 family provide customers flexibility by enabling a single platform to support multiple technologies, including Ethernet, OTN, jitter/wander, SDH/SONET, VCat, GFP, Fiber Channel and 40G/100G CFP. The ONT-600 family's plug-in modules address the optical and digital testing needs in research and development, system verification testing, production and troubleshooting.
