Acacia, now part of Cisco, announced a new DSP and optical module designed to provide single-carrier 1.2T operation. The module combines the new Jannu DSP with the next generation of Acacia’s 3D Siliconization packaging technology combining the silicon photonics integrated circuit, high-speed modulator driver, and transimpedance amplifier in a single optoelectronic package.
“Historically, Acacia has been a groundbreaker in advancing coherent technology, and the company continues to demonstrate a long-term vision for how multi-haul coherent optics should evolve over time.” said Dr. Scott Wilkinson, Lead Analyst for Optical Components at Cignal AI. “Acacia’s new Coherent Interconnect Module is a great example of market leadership. This solution is a logical next step following the widely adopted Pico DSP-based products and will provide pluggability that is attractive to both traditional and cloud operators.”Acacia Unveils Industry’s First Single Carrier 1.2T Multi-Haul Pluggable Module
