Coherent Equivalence Beyond 400G – Milestones And Industry Guidance For Aligning Technology Roadmaps

Tuesday, 5 March, 14:00-17:00
Theater II, Hall E
Session sponsored and organized by Juniper Networks

Session Description

Machine Learning and Automation will become vital to progressing network architectures. The broad adoption of evolving industry standards will lead to; rather than constrain, the trajectory of innovative service trends in the Cloud era. New hardware and software innovations at layers 1-3 will enable these layers to actively engage in automation trends going forward. “Coherent Equivalence” is a term that represents the combining and aligning of appropriate client and line Optical Interfaces and packaging with Packet Forwarding ASICs to enable immense flexibility, full access to throughput capacity control and the mitigation of multivendor-induced interoperability complexity that hinders automation. Join us for an in-depth review and discussion of trends, packet and optical boundaries being crossed, optimal paths forward, and how roadmap alignment can accelerate architecture evolution to new levels of performance, efficiency and simplicity.
