But viability doesn’t always translate into commercial reality. This panel will review the benefits and challenges around the deployment of co-packaged Ethernet switches from both a technical and commercial perspective. How is CPO affecting investments by the optical and Ethernet component supplier landscape and when will we see deployments in commercially meaningful volumes?
