Datacenter Optics Reliability: Can We Standardize Requirements, and Can They be Relaxed Given Redundancies and <~5-Year Lifetimes?

Sunday, March 3, 2019
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Room number: 6E

Although reliability requirements for data center optics are considered less stringent than for traditional telecom/datacom applications, the industry has yet to agree to a standard.  Given the high performance, fast time to market, and low price demands, it has become critical for these requirements to be clearly understood and documented. This workshop will bring major datacenter operators, module suppliers, and component suppliers to the table to address these topics.
