400ZR is bringing the benefits of coherent pluggable solutions to the data center edge network environment after a relatively rapid convergence thanks to hyperscale operators, module suppliers, equipment vendors, and the Optical Internetworking Forum. The question now is, where do we go from here? This session wil discuss with industry experts the potential areas of expansion beyond 400ZR such as: data rates beyond 400G, channel spacing evolution, technology enablers, and how these will collectively affect next generation architectures beyond DCI edge.
