PMC-Sierra PM5420 HyPHY 20G and PM5426 HyPHY 10G Devices

PMC-Sierra introduced the PM5420 HyPHY 20G and PM5426 HyPHY 10G devices. The PM5420 and PM5426 enable the convergence of high-bandwidth data, video, and voice services over Optical Transport Network (ITU-T G.709 OTN) based Metro infrastructures. PMC-Sierra’s HyPHY products can reduce line card variants by 75%, achieve 50% power savings, and deliver multi-service aggregation flexibility to accelerate the transition to IP-optimised OTN networks. OEMs can now deliver Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM), Optical Transport Platform (OTP), and Micro OTP (µ-OTP) equipment that addresses Carriers’ technical requirements and reduces operational and capital expenditures.

HyPHY Features

  • True per-port rate and protocol flexibility: Independent, rate-agile SERDES for direct connect to SFP, SFP+ and XFP optical modules, reducing cost, power and footprint
  • Multi-Service Muxponder: Single chip add-drop for both OTN and SONET/SDH
  • Efficient Fibre Utilisation: First to market with integrated support for sub-ODU1 mapping of GE or other low speed client services
  • Carrier Ethernet: First to market with integrated support for Timing over Packet (IEEE 1588 and SynchE) and Ethernet Link OAM required in mobile backhaul

HyPHY 20G delivers high capacity framing, mapping and multiplexing of Carrier Ethernet, SAN, OTN, transparent bit services such as video, and SONET/SDH to allow Carriers to reduce the number of network elements, while incrementally adding bandwidth or changing service mix per node without forklift upgrades. The platform provides client-agnostic, rate-agile Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) and 10 Gigabit pluggable (XFP or SFP+) interfaces and a set of flexible system interfaces for networking to a variety of switch fabric architectures. HyPHY 10G provides a lower density option for optical platforms. The HyPHY family integrates high-performance mixed-signal analog and media access control.

OTN is the industry’s choice as the replacement technology for SONET/SDH, providing optimised transport of IP services. The global transition, however, has been delayed by the need for low-power, cost-effective service gateways with simultaneous protocol support for Carrier Ethernet, video, storage area network (SAN), OTN and SONET/SDH at the network edge.

The PM5420 HyPHY 20G and PM5426 HyPHY 10G devices are sampling now to select customers in 40mm x 40mm 1517 ball FCBGA packages.
