With 400G optics deployments on the horizon, what will be required next by hyperscale data centers? Do pluggable optical modules continue to scale to 800G/1.6T, or are new solutions required? What are the key technologies and enablers for next generation data center interconnect? What are the critical limitations and possible solutions? 

Panelists from hyperscale data centers, system companies, and module manufacturers, will share their views of what’s beyond 400G for hyperscale data centers.
