OIF Publishes Implementation Agreement for 400ZR

The OIF announced that the official release of the 400ZR implementation agreement is now available for download. Microsoft and Cignal AI were both asked to comment on the role of the OIF in orchestrating this new lower-cost, shorter reach pluggable coherent technology.

“The 400ZR IA is an example of OIF’s ability to quickly and effectively mobilize opinion and to bring interoperability to a rapidly evolving world,” said Andrew Schmitt, Directing Analyst at Cignal AI. “The 400ZR specification is the organization’s first step to establish broader interoperability among coherent transport interfaces.”
