Date / Time: Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 12:00 p.m. New York / 5:00 p.m. London
Overview:
 
sponsored by

Network operators are now embracing the promise of coherent pluggables to enable new architectures including IP over DWDM that help reduce capex and opex. Newer coherent pluggable options such as Bi-Directional, 400ZR+ and high launch power solutions are expanding applications. In this webinar, representatives from several network operators explain the real-world applications for 100G, 200G and 400G coherent pluggable modules in their networks.

Topics will include:

  • Network operator perspectives on the opportunities and challenges of deploying coherent pluggables
  • Key applications for new Bright high launch power (i.e., 0 dBm) pluggable optics v
  • Use cases and architecture approaches for DCI, metro, and access application
