Status: In Production
The PM5984 META-120GX is part of Microchip's family of Router PHY devices that enable high density Ethernet and OTN line cards on routers, carrier Ethernet switches and packet-optical transport equipment. By providing converged OTN and Ethernet interfaces in 12x 10G, 3x 40G or 1x 100G configurations, the META-120GX delivers a single-chip solution that OEMs can use for multiple applications.
The META-120GX delivers the rich set of mapping options required by carrier router and switch line cards. It supports GFP packet traffic mapping, including Ethernet and IP/MPLS into OTN, and transparent Ethernet mapping using GMP or BMP as specified in G.709. All 10G ports support mapping 10GE traffic into OTU2 in accordance with G.709/G.Sup43. Integrated 10G/40G/100G Ethernet MAC/PCS provide standards-compatible, rich performance monitoring.
Designed for leading edge carrier routing and switching solutions, the META-120GX provides OEMs with industry-leading carrier Ethernet functions. In addition to 802.3ah Link OAM, the device supports packet-based timing distribution via Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588v2 Precision Timing Protocol. This enables carriers to deliver the performance required for packetbased wireless backhaul infrastructure.
Variants available with OTN encryption (PM5984) and without OTN encryption (PM5985).
