The OIF invited Scott Wilkinson to speak at its quarterly meeting on February 8th, 2022. Scott provided an update on the pluggable coherent market, something that the OIF has taken a leadership role in providing implementation agreements for. The OIF issued a press release summarizing progress at the meeting.
“The OIF’s wildly successful 400ZR specification is largely responsible for the recent growth of 400Gbps coherent pluggables and the emergence of IP-over-DWDM as a valid network configuration. The group’s quarterly meetings are an invaluable source of information on what’s next in optical interfaces.” – Scott Wilkinson, Lead Analyst, Optical Components at Cignal AIOIF Q1 2022 Member Meeting Results in New CEI and CMIS Projects, Working Group Election
