SMartoptics highlighted how its latest solutions are optimizing energy costs in optical networking as optimizing power consumption becomes a bigger priority for DCI (Data Center Interconnect). The company has launched a series of new solutions designed for openness and disaggregation in IP-over-DWDM applications.
The potential Capex benefits of IP-over-DWDM get all the attention, but its reduction in operational costs could prove even more meaningful. The elimination of transponder hardware results in a more space and
power efficient architecture, which is increasingly valuable as energy prices rise. Smartoptics has
embraced the shift to open, disaggregated networks based on router-hosted coherent optics and is well positioned to help optical network operators capture these benefits.
