PMC to Present at OptiNet China

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--PMC-Sierra, Inc. (PMC®) (Nasdaq:PMCS), the semiconductor and software solutions innovator transforming networks that connect, move and store big data, will sponsor and present at OptiNet China, June 16-17, 2015, at the Presidential Plaza Hotel in Beijing.

Kevin So, Senior Product Line Manager for PMC, will present “Enabling 400G and OTN Switching in China’s Metro Optical Networks,” on June 16th at 2:30PM local time.

China leads the world in deploying 100G and OTN switched optical transport networks. With Metro traffic set to increase 2X driven by cloud-based services, operators in China need to aggressively scale their optical transport networks to support even greater bandwidth while ensuring power consumption and costs are minimized. The “Internet Plus” era is also expected to drive a greater need for interconnecting China’s hyperscale data centers with dense 100G transport solutions.

The presentation will also discuss:

  • Industry challenges in scaling solutions from 100G to 400G
  • Critical technology enablers to architect 400G+ OTN line cards
  • Innovations to reduce power consumption per port by up to 50%
  • Design considerations for hardware and software engineers in delivering solutions that address the above challenges.
  • Implications of SDN on optical transport requirements
