NeoPhotonics transceivers included in OIF 400ZR interoperability demo
At the Optical Fiber Communication conference (OFC 2022) in San Diego (8-10 March), NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, USA – a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of silicon photonics and hybrid photonic integrated circuit (PIC)-based lasers, modules and subsystems for high-speed communications – says that its OSFP and QSFP-DD 400ZR transceivers are included in the OIF 400ZR interoperability and CMIS demonstrations.
At this year’s OFC, OIF is hosting its largest demonstration of interoperability to date, featuring five key technology areas – 400ZR optics; co-packaging architectures; common electrical I/O (CEI) channels; FlexE (Flex Ethernet) definitions and Common Management Interface Specification (CMIS) implementations. The interoperability demos are both live and static at OIF’s booth, #5101, during OFC.
“Interoperability is a key element to enable widespread adoption of 400ZR,” says chairman & CEO Tim Jenks. “Our successful interoperability with different manufacturers’ modules, switches, routers and test equipment helps to establish and expand the 400ZR eco-system,” he adds.
