Panel V: Evolution of Coherent Transceiver Architectures for Specific Applications

Thursday, 10 March 10:30 – 12:00
Theater I

Session Description:

The ever-expanding traffic growth across the internet requires continued innovation in network device design and the transceivers that connect them to enable a more robust and efficient network for intraconnect and interconnect applications. As the industry copes with multiple device and architecture design types, the evolution of the coherent transceiver design requires additional debate. In this session, the panel will explore the different paths coherent transceivers design (modular, pluggables, co-packaged, onboard) will take over the next three to five years.
