Apodis – OTN Processors


The Apodis product family of OTN processors is the second generation of IP Light's OTN processors. Apodis is optimized for high-density OTN blades and supports a broad range of services. Having been designed with cutting edge technology, Apodis processors offer breakthrough application dependent power minimization, small footprint and high capacity, supporting up to 40G of Client Side and 40G Line Side bi-directional traffic on a single chip. Apodis' large variety of client interfaces includes, amongst others, Ethernet, Video, Storage, SDH/SONET, OTN, CPRI and OBSAI.


Based on multiple IP Light patents, Apodis' fully featured design, which also includes Ethernet Layer 2 functionality and IEEE 1588 V2 hardware stamping, is based on an intensive cooperation with leading service providers, whose feedback has led to the design of the highest capacity multi-service OTN processor available in the industry.


Apodis' innovative technology enables carriers to take the leap into super-Broadband services, both wireline as well as wireless, providing the necessary capabilities required for bandwidth-hungry applications. Drawing on its unique client-side technology, Apodis processors offer the widest range of CPRI, OBSAI and Ethernet interfaces. Supporting lower bit-rate CPRI signals ranging from CPRI-1 to CPRI-5, Apodis processors already address forward looking CPRI-7 and CPRI-8 services thus providing a unique solution for Mobile Fronthaul (MFH) networks required to support a simultaneous combination of CPRI signals of varying rates. Due to its inherent multi-service architecture, mobile fronthaul and backhaul signals can be combined with Ethernet services: FE, GbE and 10GE. Specialized services such as Video signals and Storage Networks in the range of 100Mbps-11Gbps are also accommodated by Apodis' client ports.
