IP Light is a fabless semiconductor company addressing the rapidly evolving needs of new generation Optical Transport Networks, and in particular the immense mobile fronthaul market (MFH). MFH networks are of the essence in order to enable the C-RAN (Cloud Radio Access Network) architectures of LTE-A (Long Term Evolution Advanced) services. IP Light has announced its worldwide first, pioneering Apodis C product family, which is the first family of OTN processors addressing the specific synchronization, jitter and delay requirements for the transport of CPRI signals across optical infrastructures. IP Light's Apodis C devices incorporate unique, patented SERDES supporting CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) signals as well as multiple Ethernet services. Apodis' SERDES elements are equipped with sophisticated jitter filters, provide totally flexible synchronization options and, thanks to configurable filter poles, also support services such as SyncE. Based on a patented core technology that provides flexible processing of ODU0, ODU1,ODU2 and ODUflex bearers, IP Light has developed the Apodis C product family of OTN Processors which are optimized for RRH (Remote Radio Head) to BBU (BaseBand Unit Controller) CPRI transport.. IP Light’s Apodis C OTN processors are intended for both antenna tower as well as CO (Central Office) BBU pools deployment..


IP Light's Apodis product families provide comprehensive solutions for mobile fronthaul and edge/access applications. IP Light's Apodis devices slash the design effort required for systems requiring state-of-the-art OTN functionality. In addition, IP Light has designed a worldwide first high-density prototypes solution for MFH systems.


IP Light has leveraged its world-class systems, VLSI and optical networking background to build an architecture that delivers unprecedented performance enhancement in synchronization, jitter elimination, pass-through delay, power and cost. The Apodis OTN processors designed by IP Light support CPRI and Ethernet client signals addressing the needs of MFH networks. The Apodis product families of OTN Processors combine these unprecedented capabilities while the highest processing capacity of CPRI and Ethernet signals in the industry.


IP Light’s Apodis devices will become the foundation for next generation C-RAN architectures.
