Acacia Builds Upon Coherent Pluggable Leadership with 400G Portfolio

Acacia announced a new family of 400G coherent pluggable optics for 400ZR/Open ROADM applications based on the new 7nm Greylock DSP, one of two vendors to introduce these products at OFC2020. Andrew Schmitt reiterated earlier statements of Acacia being the clear leader in the pluggable coherent market.

“Acacia is reinforcing its coherent pluggable leadership by sampling 400G technology in multiple form factors,” said Andrew Schmitt, Directing Analyst at Cignal AI. “Interoperable 400G solutions have the potential to transform cloud DCI and traditional operator architectures and create new applications for coherent optics at the edge of the network.”
