OIF Thought Leaders to Provide Updates on Co-Packaging, 400ZR, Electrical Data Rates and Transport SDN Projects at Global Conferences
OIF thought leaders will share insight into OIF's interoperability work in groundbreaking technologies at some of the world's largest global communications conferences: OFC 2021, Optinet China 2021 and China Fiber Connect Forum 2021.
OIF's dynamic membership has brought about significant advances in the industry through its interoperability work.
"For more than 20 years, we've led the way for network operators and system, component and test equipment vendors to collaborate on, and test the interoperability of the electrical, optical and control solutions that directly impact the industry. Our members continue the path forward by sharing their expertise and OIF project updates at three global conferences this month," said Ian Betty, OIF Board President, Ciena.
OFC 2021 Panels - Virtual
"Electrical Data Rates Keep Pushing Forward: An OIF Update"
Tuesday, June 08, 2021 - 12:30 - 13:30 PDT
This OFC-sponsored panel of industry experts will discuss the need for co-packaged optics (CPO) inside the data center. The path to CPO commercialization is fraught with risk. An entire ecosystem must be developed to support the transition from pluggable modules. The panel consists of specialists who come from different parts of this potential ecosystem to deliberate CPO's merits, its potential pitfalls, how and perhaps when it can be successful.
