Divestment to an affiliate of The Carlyle Group in exchange for a minority equity stake in newly-capitalized venture allows MACOM to participate in NewCo’s potential long-term value creation
Macom Technology Solutions has announced what it believes is the industry’s first and only complete chipset for 10Gb/s passive optical network (PON) applications.
The availability of all products from the same supplier will accelerate the deployment of 10G PON systems by make it easier and more cost-effective for customers to integrate the various parts when designing and building optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network unit (ONU) equipment.
Macom Technology Solutions has unveiled what it claims is the industry’s first complete 100G single lambda solution for cloud data centre optical interconnects that promises unprecedented system density at even lower cost per bit.
The availability of a complete set of products from a single supplier will enable customers to quickly and easily integrate those components, and get to market faster with the next-generation of 100G interconnects.
The demand by Cloud Data Centers for faster data delivery speeds at cost-effective prices is growing rapidly. Higher speeds are necessary for Cloud Data Centers to process the current explosion in traffic. Mobile and video use drove data center traffic to 4.7 zettabytes (ZB), or almost five trillion gigabytes (GB), in 2015, and Cloud traffic will hit 14.1ZB in 2020. Cisco predicts that in 2020, 92 percent of Data Center bandwidth will be used by cloud data workloads rather than traditional workloads.
The insatiable global demand for data and computing resources is driving an ever-accelerating proliferation of cloud data center infrastructure. To keep pace with this demand, it’s estimated that cloud service providers daily deploy enough new server and networking capacity to onboard a Fortune 500 enterprise. New data center build outs continue unabated, with facility footprints so large that they’re commonly measured in football fields. This aggressive build out activity will augment existing data center infrastructure that’s already massive in scale.
Discover how MACOM (booth 1736) is increasing bandwidth density in optical networks. Leveraging deep domain experience in optical networking along with a combination of semiconductor technologies, MACOM creates innovative and smart products supporting cloud data centre, client access, metro and long-haul applications.
MACOM has enabled over a million 100G modules going into data center and enterprise applications. This number is beyond even the largest projections reported by market analysts to date, and includes leadership positions in long reach and short reach laser and VCSEL drivers, CDRs and TIAs. We believe this is just the beginning of a ramp that will see demand for 100G connectivity within data centers triple over the next four years.
M/A-COM (MACOM), a supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, has announced a new three-stage low noise amplifier for point to point applications.
The MAAL-011111 is a low-noise amplifier covering 22-38GHz in a small and low cost 3X3mm QFN package. It offers 19dB of gain and less than 3dB of noise figure. The LNA is self-biased requiring only a single 3.3V voltage supply and there is no need for any external components.
