ZTE Designs Virtex-6 FPGAs Into IP Transport Network Platform, Enabling 100G Ethernet Service Deployment


Xilinx announced that ZTE designed its
packet-based multiservice bearer platform using high performance Xilinx
Virtex-6 FPGAs, enabling 100G Ethernet service deployment.


ZTE cites superior Virtex-6 FPGA
performance, low power consumption and flexibility as key contributors to its
success in getting to market in record time to establish a technology lead in
the fiercely competitive market for carrier, enterprise and data center network


ZTE’s IPTN (internet protocol transport
network) passed the most strict, authoritative tests for communications
infrastructure solutions, most recently in China Mobile’s large-scale testing
which support high-volume purchasing.


“As cloud computing, mobile Internet
and high-definition services drive global demand for steep increases in data
bandwidth, ZTE is commanding a market and technology edge over our rivals in
next-generation, ultra-high-speed routing,” said Zhai HongJian, director
of the IPTN hardware department at ZTE Corp.


Virtex-6 met the stringent performance and
power specification for IPTN design, while delivering a level of flexibility
that will enable ZTE customers to easily address evolving standards and deploy
new services.


Xilinx’s Virtex-6 FPGA met all performance
and industry standard specifications [40G MAC, Ethernet OAM to enable key IPTN
functionality, including: massive packet switching, flexible traffic management
with sufficient queue resource and traffic cache capacity, programmability and
upgradeability. In addition, the Virtex-6 FPGA met ZTE’s low power requirements
to easily pass thermal design tests, thereby ensuring system stability.


Over the past 10 years, ZTE has also
selected Xilinx Virtex and Spartan FPGAs for wireless baseband, RRU platforms,
data communications systems and carrier network, and switch and access network
products, to name a few.


The Virtex-6 and Virtex-7 FPGA families are
suited to wired communications equipment requirements for scalable bandwidth
and optical-compliant high-speed serial transceivers with low jitter for high
volume end products such as: routers, switches, 100GE line cards, 100-gigabit
optical transport network (OTN) muxponders for integrated
multiplexer/transponder applications, 300G Interlaken bridges, and 400G optical
network cards.


Virtex FPGAs also address a range of other
high-bandwidth applications, including: highest signal processing for advanced
wireless baseband processing systems, ultra-high digital signal performance for
aerospace and defense infrastructure systems, and scalable, flexible,
low-latency performance for broadcast systems.
