Harris, a named executive officer of PMC-Sierra Inc. announced his intention to retire from his positions as the company's Chief Operating Officer and General Manager (GM) of its Communications Business Unit (CBU) effective May 29, 2015. PMC has designated Tom Sun, the General Manager of PMC's Broadband Wireless Division to assume the GM role for CBU after a period of transition with Mr. Harris.

Mr. Harris joined the Pacific Microelectronics Centre in 1989 before it combined with Sierra Semiconductor in 1992 to become what is now known as PMC-Sierra.

PMC-Sierra Inc. Introduces DIGI OTN Processor

PMC-Sierra Inc. introduced its latest DIGI OTN processor, enabling the transition to 400G line cards in OTN switched metro networks. The new DIGI-G4 builds on the success of PMC’s DIGI-120G, which is globally deployed in service provider and hyperscale data center wide area networks (WANs). It is the densest single-chip 4x100G OTN processor with 50% less power per port than the previous generation. DIGI-G4 addresses the needs of an SDN-ready, encrypted transport infrastructure. It delivers the capacity, security and flexibility required for 400G line cards in packet optical transport platforms (P-OTP), ROADM/WDM and optimized data center interconnect platforms. Big data is driving metro network bandwidth to double to 110Tb/s by 20171. In response, OEMs are scaling their transport platforms with 400G OTN line cards. DIGI-G4 is the industry’s first OTN processor to enable single-chip 400G line cards for OTN switching on P-OTPs. It increases 10G, 40G and 100G line card port density by 4X with flexible client mapping of Ethernet, storage, IP/MPLS and SONET/SDH, while reducing power by 50% per port. DIGI-G4 builds on the IP from DIGI-120G, enabling customers to maintain their rich feature set and software investment, which reduces time to market by up to six months and lowers development costs. DIGI-G4 Secures Hyperscale Data Center WAN. DIGI-G4 delivers multi-rate, sub-180ns latency OTN encryption, allowing cloud and communications service providers to ensure security without compromising performance. DIGI-G4 supports sub-wavelength OTN encryption and is compatible with OTN switched networks. These capabilities, combined with the densest 10G/40G/100G Ethernet ports, enables a new class of low-power, high-capacity transport platforms optimized specifically for the hyperscale data center WAN interconnect market.
