Spirent and Innolight test 800G

Spirent Communications has validated an 800G optical transceiver from InnoLight Technology (Suzhou).

The project successfully demonstrated an 800G link up and line rate traffic transmission using IEEE 802.3ck OSFP for VSR application. InnoLight and Spirent engineers worked closely to develop and get the 800G link operational to emulate the traffic of hyperscale datacenters.

“We were delighted to work with Spirent to showcase this latest step towards 800G interoperability,” said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer for InnoLight. “As vendor-agnostic test and measurement leaders, Spirent was able to help us create the environment to continuously test and validate the performance of our 800 Gbps OSFP DR8+ 2km SMP optical transceivers, which are such vital components of the future datacenter and cloud network ecosystem.”

"We are seeing increasing demand from customers for 800G test solutions, and this partnership with InnoLight is a major step forward in proving interoperability and increasing customer confidence in this new technology,” said Abhitesh Kastuar, general manager, Cloud & IP, Spirent Communications. “We are working at the bleeding edge of current high-speed Ethernet technology development to enable our customers to design, develop and eventually deploy 800G technology, and this successful interoperability demonstration will give early adopters the confidence to accelerate design and development of their 800G capable next-gen devices.”

ECOC 2018: InnoLight demos 400G QSFP-DD DR4

InnoLight Technology, which is based in Suzhou, China, will demonstrate a 400G QSFP-DD DR4 interoperating with 100G single lambda DR1 at ECOC 2018.

In addition, InnoLight will introduce its family of 400G optical transceivers, including 400G OSFP, 400G QSFP-DD and 100G QSFP28 single lambda optical products.

Innolight's current and upcoming products include: OSFP SR8, QSFP-DD SR8, QSFP28 DR1, OSFP 2XFR4, QSFP-DD DR4/DR4+, QSFP28 FR1, OSFP DR4/DR4+,  QSFP-DD FR4, SFP-DD AOC, OSFP FR4, QSFP-DD LR4, OSFP LR4.

"New applications such as digital reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and 5G wireless are driving the network traffic to an unprecedented level. Cloud operators need continuing innovation in optical solutions to support bandwidth demand. InnoLight's comprehensive family of 400G solutions will enable cloud operators to rapidly upgrade its networks from 100G to 400G.  InnoLight, with its advanced R&D capability, strong technology partnerships, state-of the-art manufacturing capability will continue to provide better solutions for the industry," said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer of InnoLight Technology.

InnoLight to demo 400G QSFP-DD FR4 Optical Transceivers #OFC2018

InnoLight Technology announced its line-up of 400G QSFP-DD and OSFP optical transceivers:

  • QSFP-DD SR8                                        
  • QSFP-DD DR4                                        
  • OSFP SR8
  • OSFP AOC                          
  • OSFP 2x FR4     
  • OSFP LR8

These will be on display at the upcoming OFC2018 in San Diego.

"Both OSFP and QSFP-DD have been adopted as the next generation 400G optics for cloud networks. Each solution has its advantages and target applications. Depending upon the cloud operator's network architecture, either QSFP-DD or OSFP offers the most cost-effective solutions for 400G data center network connectivity. InnoLight, with its advanced R&D capability and strong technology partnerships, is proud to bring both form factors to the market simultaneously. 400G QSFP-DD excels in backward compatibility with 100G/200G QSFP28/56. 400G OSFP stands out in enabling upward migration to 800G. InnoLight is aggressively driving adoption of both 400G form factors to deliver the best price-performance optics in the industry," said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer of InnoLight Technology.

InnoLight Demos 400G OSFP

InnoLight Technology based in Suzhou, China, a supplier of next generation cloud computing optical transceivers, has announced volume shipments of a suite of QSFP28 products and the availability of what it claims is the first 400 Gbit/s OSFP at OFC 2017 in Los Angeles.

InnoLight noted that 100 Gbit/s QSFP28 has become the de-facto standard for optical interconnects for cloud networks, as on a cost-per-gigabit basis 100 Gbit/s QSFP28 can be significantly more cost effective compared with 10 Gbit/s SFP+ and 40 Gbit/s QSFP+. As a result, the industry is rapidly deploying QSFP28 connections.

To support this transition, InnoLight is introducing a complete portfolio of QSFP28 optics solutions, as follows: SR4; eCWDM4; eSR4; CLR4; AOC; LR4 (Ethernet); QSFP28 to 4 x 25 Gbit/s SFP28 AOC; LR4 (dual rates); PSM4; LR4 (receive only); CWDM4; and ER4-Lite.

InnoLight stated that it is currently offering seventeen QSFP28 parts in mass production. The company noted that it is developing 400 Gbit/s solutions based on both the OSFP and QSFP-DD form factors to enable the optimal price-performance.

In addition, to support the 400 Gbit/s expansion, InnoLight will conduct a live demonstration of 400 Gbit/s OSFP optics during OFC.
