Single-Lambda 100G: Enabling 400GE Data Center Networking
Date / Time: Tuesday, May 17, 2016, 2:00 p.m. New York/ 11:00 a.m. Pacific

Omar Hassan, Associate Vice President, Applied Micro

Insatiable demand from Internet Content Providers with hyperscale data centers for network bandwidth is pushing 400GE as the next speed. Cost-effective deployment of 400GE in the data center will require single-laser solutions with PAM4 modulation.

By leveraging existing fiber infrastructure, single-lambda 100G solutions enable quadruple face plate densities while providing the flexible deployment model required in today's increasingly flat networks and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.

Chip development for a FinFET process node is the only way to deliver the power and density capabilities required by single-lambda 100G solutions. Having demonstrated their industry-leading, FinFET-based, True 100G test platform at OFC 2016, AppliedMicro is uniquely positioned to sponsor this webinar.

Featuring experts from AppliedMicro and other industry leaders, this webinar will show the readiness and deployment timeframe of the 400GE silicon, module and switch ecosystem.

Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
