Multi-Service OTN IP Cores

Arrive’s FPGA-based Multi-Service OTN IP Cores offer up to a 100Gbps OTN processor, with highly integrated capabilities for SONET/SDH, CES/CEP, and Carrier Ethernet features. 

The network side supports multiple OTU rates (OTU4/OTU2/OTU2r/OTU2f/OTU2e/ OTU1f/OTU1) and up to 32 transceivers on the client side, 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-Service OTN IP Cores 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 IP Cores can be used for CPRI-over-OTN in a small size FPGA. This provides high-quality frequency and very low latency that provides a cost-effective solution for next generation C-RAN Mobile Fronthaul while still meeting the strict timing requirements of CPRI and 3GPP.

Arrive’s IP Cores are provided in fully complete bitstream or encrypted netlist format along with firmware device driver/software API packages, BSP, schematic and layout reference design files, design reviews, board testing and support from initial project definition to mass production. The IP Core bitstreams and encrypted netlists are targeted to specific FPGA devices that are selected based on the mix of features requested and customer preference.


All IP Cores are provided with Arrive's SDK with a single API software driver that supports protocol stack handling. For customers who want to maximize investment on existing software, Arrive supports integration of its SDK into a customer's existing software.  SDK source code and full documentation is provided.

The Multi-Services OTN IP Cores begin with a series of core features. From these, each specific design is tailored to a customer’s exact specifications.
