Marvell and OE Solutions announced a collaboration to deliver the industry’s first production-ready 100G QSFP-DD optical modules optimized for 5G backhaul and Metro Access applications. This product is a derivative of the COLORZ II designed for lower-speed applications requiring industrial temperature range compliance.
“Metro access’s transition to 100Gbps coherent optics has been closely examined in Cignal AI’s forecasting for the past two years,” said Scott Wilkinson, Optical Components Lead Analyst at Cignal AI. “There is enormous potential for growth as 100Gbps coherent upgrades the millions of 10Gbps DWDM transceivers currently deployed in metro access. The industry is eagerly awaiting a solution that can meet the performance, price, and form factors necessary to implement 100Gbps coherent in that part of the network. Deneb-enabled standardized 100Gbps optical modules will accelerate this transition.”Production-Ready 100G Pluggables Leading the 10G to 100G Transition
