Line Side 100Gb/s DWDM Network Solutions – Debating the Options

Thursday, 7 March, 11:00-13:00
Theater III, Hall G

Session Description

Today’s long haul standards-based DWDM deployments for 100G & higher feature very high dispersion tolerances, but are very expensive to deploy and complex to manage.  Many companies deploying 100G line side DWDM are willing to step outside the box to consider lower cost alternatives.  This panel discussion looks at 100Gb/s line side standards and discusses alternatives for limited distance links.  A chromatic dispersion limited DWDM line side version of PAM-4 is gaining popularity as a low cost alternative to coherent detection receivers, although no industry standard exists today supporting this approach.

We will hear from a private network operator, data center interconnect player, network equipment provider and industry standards representative – pro’s and con’s, and their thoughts on each approach.
