OIF showcasing 400ZR, CEI-112G and IC-TROSA interoperability demos at ECOC

In booth # 441 at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2019) in Dublin, Ireland (23-25 September), 12 member companies of the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) β€” ADVA, Amphenol, Cadence Design System, Credo, Finisar, Inphi, Keysight Technologies, Marvell, Molex, MultiLane, TE Connectivity and Yamaichi Electronics β€”are giving live multi-vendor interoperability demonstrations of 400ZR, Common Electrical I/O (CEI)-112G and IC-TROSA (transmitter receiver optical sub-assembly).

“Understanding and seeing first-hand how key technologies – 400ZR, CEI-112G and IC-TROSA – are each specified to enable interoperable deployment across the ecosystem is critically important to building market confidence and accelerating adoption,” says Steve Sekel, chair of the OIF Physical and Link Layer (PLL) Interoperability Working Group.

400ZR & IC-TROSA demo

OIF’s 400ZR project aims to not only facilitate cost and complexity reduction for 400GbE over 80km DWDM networks, but also to bring forward a wave of necessary components and complementary applications. The IC-TROSA features all of the optical building blocks for a coherent module in a single package. The demonstrations will highlight important aspects of IC-TROSA integration as well as real-time EVM (error vector magnitude) measurements with the updated script for 400ZR. In addition, a hardware-based 400ZR installation will show a typical application case.

CEI-112G demo

OIF is developing electrical interface specifications for 112Gbps per differential pair. The CEI-112G demonstrations feature multi-party silicon supplier interoperability over mated compliance board channels, a full host to module channel and direct attach copper (DAC) cable channels, all demonstrating the technical viability of 112Gbps operation, along with multiple industry form factors including OSFP and QSFP-DD.

Market Focus

OIF is presenting ’Deployment of the 400ZR Ecosystem’ on 24 September (15-15:30) during the ECOC Market Focus Service and Content Provider Optical Transmission track. OIF expert and OIF Physical and Link Layer Working Group, vice chair Optical, Karl Gass is presenting.
