Marvell and Innolight announced the general availability of InnoLight’s first coherent 100G QSFP-DD optical module portfolio. The new module family is powered by the Marvell® Deneb™ Coherent DSP and is the latest collaboration between the two companies. The entry of InnoLight, one of the largest optical transceiver manufacturers in the world, into the coherent QSFP-DD optical module market is accelerating the transition of 10G to 100G coherent WDM solutions.
Cignal AI has highlighted the need for a 100Gbps coherent optical solution at the edge of the network for the past two years. There is enormous potential for growth as 100Gbps coherent upgrades the millions of 10Gbps DWDM transceivers currently deployed at the edge. Deneb-enabled standardized 100Gbps optical modules will accelerate this transition as the industry eagerly pursues solutions with the performance, price, and form factors necessary to implement 100Gbps coherent at the edge.
