Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) will showcase this week a range of products engineered to simplify and accelerate high-speed network test across all phases of the network lifecycle including development and system verification, manufacturing, turn up and installation, and troubleshooting and monitoring. The new products highlight the VIAVI presence at OFC 2021, taking place virtually from June […]

If you would like a more in-depth review of what the path forward with 800G pluggable optics may look like may we suggest watching Preparing the Way for 800G: 100G Electrical and 800G Pluggable Optics. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– The creation of the 800G ecosystem has begun. Alpha samples of 800G OSFP modules have been demonstrated and we […]

One of the great challenges facing data communications is matching the silicon bandwidth with the face plate density. Today, switch silicon can process over 12 Tb/s. But getting this off the front panel at a reasonable density is a challenge. One direction is to move to faster Ethernet speeds. A great example of this is […]

The ONT family has established itself as the reference for module development and validation. This pedigree continues with our ONT-800 family covering both QSFP-DD and CFP2 pluggable digital coherent optics (DCO). Developing and validation of DCO has many new challenges and having a stable test and development environment is key to reliable product validation and […]

Pluggable coherent optics offer advantages in many areas. One of the biggest factors is electronic dispersion compensation. For DCI, traditional ‘direct detect’ systems needed a detailed pre-planned link with dispersion compensation ‘engineered in’. This is both expensive and challenging to deploy. Scaling and maintaining are complicated. Electronic dispersion compensation inside the DSP of coherent modules […]
