Session organized by Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF)
A panel of industry experts representing the coherent eco-system will discuss and debate the conflicting demands for a near-term, high-volume, interoperable, moderate reach, coherent 400G optical link. The status of the OIF’s project to define a 400ZR link specification will also be provided. A panel discussion including representatives of the DSP, optics, equipment and end user communities will ensure this will be a lively discussion. Participate in a conversation with the OIF on the vital need for an interoperable 400G Coherent link and gain an update on the project status.
