Tera-Pass develops advanced Optical Transport Network (OTN) processors that enable Network Equipment (NE) vendors to build optimized, resilient and cost-effective wireline and wireless access and metro systems.
Tera-Pass offers a unique combination of both ASIC (Apodis) and IP Core (Gemini, Zephyr, Orion) based product families, enabling its Network Equipment (NE) vendors customers to select the most optimal solution for their needs.The various members of each product family are designed bearing in mind software and hardware commonality, simplifying the transition from one family member to another.Apodis OTN processors are general-purpose devices addressing capacities in the range of 10G-40G.
Gemini and Zephyr IP Cores address access and premium services applications.
Orion IP Cores address the transport of CPRI signals over OTU2r bearers. Orion IP Cores implement a novel ITU-T endorsed OTN technology that provides a unique solution for the transport of CPRI 4G signals over optical links.
Along with its various product families of OTN processors, Tera-Pass also offers an extensive range of design-support tools and services, intended to simplify and ease the integration of Tera-Pass’ products with our customers’ software and hardware systems.
As the demand for consumer and business data services continues its relentless growth, operators need to adapt and improve their networks to offer more and better services. Broadband services like high definition video and other bandwidth-hungry applications have become commonplace around the world, and over the coming years are expected to continue to increase network traffic dramatically.
New network architectures are the next logical step for operators who wish to offer advanced quality services to premium customers. OTN (Optical Transport Network) technology, that is dominant today at the Metro and Core network layers, will propagate also to the Access Layer. OTN devices at the edge of the network will allow operators to offer high-quality lucrative services to their premium customers while achieving significant CAPEX and OPEX cost reductions.
