This webinar is the third and last installment of a series around transmission technologies and testing for next-gen data centers.

The past few months saw a significant ramp up of 400G deployment trials worldwide across several applications including data center interconnect (DCI), intra data center, subsea links in the terrestrial network core and for enterprise.

Cloud computing, AI, IoT and 5G are the reasons behind these important transformations but capacity and reach are also reshaping the landscape; the use of coherent optics on distant point-to-point interconnections is gaining momentum for DCI, metro/regional and longhaul networks.

This webinar explores the impact of these fascinating technologies in and out of the data center and provides a glimpse of upcoming trends as seen at OFC 2022.

Key takeaways:

  • Key 400G use cases and test scenarios
  • 400G deployment challenges
  • The role of 400G coherent optics in high-speed networks
  • Benefits and use cases of coherent optics
  • 800G and upcoming technology trends
