OFC Media/Analyst Panel: Data Center Optics are Heading Toward Co-packaged Optics: Why, How and When

Tuesday, 08 June 12:30 – 13:30

This panel of esteemed industry experts will discuss the need for co-packaged optics (CPO) inside the data center. The path to CPO commercialization is fraught with risk. An entire ecosystem must be developed to support the transition from pluggable modules. Our panel consists of specialists who come from different parts of this potential ecosystem to deliberate CPO’s merits, its potential pitfalls, how and perhaps when it can be successful. Please join us for our open discussion.
