TransPacket announces the release of the first Ethernet IP Core for 100G Ethernet with deterministic latency. Low and deterministic latency are requirements for Ethernet based networks for the new 5G infrastructure.
TransPacket AS – Oslo, Norway, 20 March 2017. TransPacket’s FUSION technology enables low and fixed latency Ethernet transport for optical networks. Using the TransPacket FUSION 100G IP Core, system vendors can design Ethernet transport equipment meeting requirements for 5G mobile backhaul and fronthaul.
Mobile Network Operators migrate Radio Access Networks (RANs) to cloud-RANs for supporting the new 5G requirements. The core migration challenges include handling a mix of traffic types while at the same time meeting strict latency requirements of packet based fronthaul and backhaul traffic. For enabling cost efficient network deployments, common Ethernet network resources must be shared between time sensitive traffic requiring deterministic latency, and less sensitive services.
“The TransPacket FUSION 100G IP Core brings Ethernet a step further towards a transport protocol for RAN. Capacity, QoS differentiation and low deterministic latency are key requirements for 5G backhaul and fronthaul systems. TransPacket FUSION IP Core is now available for 1G, 10G and 100G Ethernet rates, helping system vendors targeting Ethernet technologies to shorten time to market for 5G”, says TransPacket CTO Steinar Bjørnstad.
TransPacket (www.transpacket.com) has patented and developed a unique technology for optical Ethernet transport with low and fixed latency. TransPacket defines a new class of service for packet based data traffic by bringing characteristics from line- and TDM-based networks into Ethernet, while simultaneously offering the high utilization and good performance expected in packet based networks. The IP Core products from Transpacket offer significant value for applications within mobile infrastructure including front-, back- and crosshaul, and applications within optical transport for access and metro networks. The company’s headquarter is in Oslo, Norway.
