Parama Networks Introduces PNI8010
Parama Networks today introduced the PNI8010, the latest "system on a chip" device in their patented ADM-on-a-Chip (AoC) family. Parama's AoC is transforming SONET and SDH networking by placing all the functions of a full-featured add/drop multiplexer (ADM) on a single CMOS IC. Complementing the previously introduced PNI8040 and PNI8160 AoCs, the new device incorporates eight programmable tributary interfaces to run at OC-3/12 or STM-1/4 rates, two OC-48/STM-16 line interfaces, and 10 G of non-blocking cross-connect. Like the other members of the family, the device is extremely power efficient, drawing less than 4 watts.
