On-board optical modules have been demonstrated since 2018, and systems using on-board optics were displayed in 2019. The webcast reviews the learnings that have come from designed systems and building networks using onboard optics. Information is shared why these learnings are critical for moving optics forward in the industry; especially as the industry looks toward developments such as terabit optical modules and co-packaged optics.
Beyond 400G - Featuring COBO, EPIC, and Ethernet Alliance
Increasing bandwidth requirements are pushing optical communication technology beyond 400G with faster switches, higher-performance VCSELs, silicon photonics, InP-based PICs, polymer, plasmonics and DML/EMLs will be imperative.
