Arrive’s Multi-Services OTN CodeChip offers up to a 100Gbps OTN processor, with highly integrated capabilities for SONET/SDH, CES/CEP, and Carrier Ethernet features. The network side can support multiple OTU rates (OTU4/OTU2/OTU2r/OTU2f/OTU2e/ OTU1f/OTU1) and up to 32 transceivers on the client side can be configured with various protocols: SONET/SDH, 1GE/10GE/40GE/100GE, Fiber Channel, ESCON/FICON, Infiniband, SDI/DVB-ASI, CPRI, CBR or XAUI/Interlaken for OTN-over-Fabric.

The Multi-Services OTN CodeChip can be used in a pizza-box or system linecard for OTN Transponder/Muxponder/ODUk Switching or P-OTS with additional customer-defined functions.

A variation of the OTN CodeChip can be used for CPRI-over-OTN in a small size FPGA. This CodeChip provides high quality frequency and very low latency that can provide a cost effective solution for next generation C-RAN Mobile Fronthaul while still meeting the strict timing requirements of CPRI and 3GPP.

CodeChips are provided with CodeChip API as a single API software driver for all CodeChip variants. CodeChip API supports protocol stack handling. For customers who want to re-use their investment on existing software, Arrive supports migration from customer’s existing software to re-use it with CodeChip solutions.

The Multi-Services OTN CodeChip family begins with a series of core features. From these, each specific design is tailored to a customer’s specifications.
