Compass-EOS Names Manouch Khezri as GM North America

Compass-EOS, which is developing a silicon-to-photonics router, appointed Manouch Khezri as its General Manager North America.

Prior to joining Compass-EOS, Mr. Khezri headed Huawei Technologies Company’s North American MSO business development. He has more than 20 years of experience in direct sales management, sales operations, channel sales, and business development. Prior to Huawei, Mr. Khezri served as a partner of the Jazuc group and Vice President at Adva Optical Networking. He’s also served as Vice President of Global Sales at Movaz Networks, a leading supplier of DWDM transport and switching equipment, where he was responsible for sales growth from $0 to more than $100 million per year. Previous to  Movaz, Mr. Khezri  was Vice President, Sales and Business Development, for Sedona Networks and held sales roles at Premisys Communications and Nortel.

Earlier this year, Compass-EOS unveiled its radical silicon-to-photonics router that essentially leverages an on-chip optical mesh and electronics to route high-densities of 100GbE and 10GbE.

The company's silicon-to-photonics implementation, which it calls icPhotonics, simplifies router design by bringing the entire backplane on-chip, thereby enabling petabit-class scalability, significantly smaller footprint and power consumption, and easier implementation of software-defined networking capabilities.  The on–chip optical integration ensures QoS routing at high utilization rates and congestion-free multicast packet handling. Compass-EOS said it is also able to ensure maximum router protection from DDoS attacks at maximum capacity.

The company's first product, r10004, is a carrier-grade, modular platform offering 800 Gbps Capacity in a 6U enclosure.  It offers 2 x 100G ports or 20 x 10G ports with full Layer 3 routing functionality for core, peering or aggregation deployments.

Infinera and Verizon Test PMD Tolerance of 500G Coherent Optical Modem

Infinera published a technical paper detailing the results of a record breaking achievement for real-time polarization mode dispersion (PMD) performance of its coherent optical transmission technology.

The IEEE paper presents results of testing conducted with Verizon that measured PMD tolerance of  Infinera’s coherent optical transmission based on its 500 Gbps photonic integrated circuits (PICs).

“Our team, with Verizon, was able to demonstrate a coherent optical transmission that can handle large PMD values with our commercially available 500 Gb/s PIC,” said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-founder, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Infinera. “System vendors in the industry today are having a difficult time achieving this. Not all coherent systems are the same. This paper illustrates the robustness of our optical solution and is a tribute to our brilliant teams here in Sunnyvale and in our Ottawa Design Center, developing the algorithms to make this possible."
