Inphi Samples Industry’s First Coherent DSP Enabling 400G Pluggables

Inphi announced it sampled its new Canopus coherent DSP, the industry’s first merchant 7nm coherent DSP designed to support 400ZR and 400ZR+ applications. Andrew Schmitt commented in the press release, joined by others from Arista, Juniper, and Molex:

“The market for coherent pluggable optics will exceed $500M by 2023,” said Andrew Schmitt, Directing Analyst at Cignal AI. “Canopus is the first product to bring standards-based interoperability to coherent networking and enable disaggregation of high-performance optical modules in both cloud DCI and traditional service providers.”
