OFC23 will offer an opportunity to see how much further and faster direct detect optics will take communications inside the data center
Understanding the next wave of 100Gbps and 200Gbps PAM4-based modules
These companies announced a collaboration on QSFP28 100ZR modules. This report is Cignal AI’s analysis of that announcement and its implications.
The Transport Application Report now includes ROADM & line system deployment data
Pluggable coherent deployments are underway. Learn how this powerful technology is transforming network architecture.
Learn How High-Performance Coherent Pluggables Can Address a Broad Set of Network Applications
The historical classification of coherent optical technology (Gen1, Gen2, etc.) is no longer sufficient. Therefore, Cignal AI will now recognize and classify coherent DSP technology by its maximum baud rate and whether the DSP is optimized for Performance or Compact applications.
Quick thoughts on equipment spending trends as well as a current view on the role of pluggable coherent modules.
Cignal AI continues to track announcements of 5th generation (800Gbps-capable, 90+ GBaud) optical trials and deployments.
Compact Modular sales (and hence disaggregation) have historically lagged in APAC versus the rest of the world, so APAC’s sudden and extraordinary growth over the past few quarters means that something has changed and deserves a closer look.
Get ready for the 2021 rollout with commentary from Inphi, Arista, and Microsoft on evaluation results and plans for rolling out 400ZR in 2021.
