400ZR pluggable are now widely available and are having a significant impact on optical architectures by making IPoDWDM and open optical networking a commercial reality. 400ZR+ modules will extend the reach beyond 120km and the next generation 800G modules are on the horizon offering a doubling in bandwidth. In this session we will bring the industry up to date during what has
undoubtedly been a landmark year for optical networks and look forward to developments for 2022.
- What are the latest developments for 400ZR and OpenZR+?
- How are 400ZR and IPoDWDM changing the optical landscape?
- Which use cases and applications are driving the adoption of 400ZR and 400ZR+ for 2022 and beyond?
- What will 800G pluggable optics offer, how quickly will they be available and what is the future for pluggable optics?
