The combination of our OLS with SmartAmp™ functionality and Inphi’s ColorZ platform solution presents a compelling opportunity for ICPs and CNPs to re-evaluate their DCI strategies.
The joint demonstration with Inphi uses ADVA Optical Networking’s recently announced direct detect OLS with SmartAmp™ technology to transport 3.6Tbit/s of bidirectional data across 80km of fiber. ADVA Optical Networking’s OLS is a key component of its FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ platform and has already achieved considerable customer success with significant shipments. Inphi’s recently launched ColorZ platform solution is the industry’s first silicon photonics to deliver 100Gbit/s PAM4 capabilities while achieving the lowest power consumption possible. When combined with ADVA Optical Networking’s OLS, the joint solution presents ICPs and CNPs with an incredibly cost-effective option for specific DCI applications.
“This year’s OFC is a major event for our team. We’re announcing the commercial availability for our ColorZ 100Gbit/s platform solution,” commented Dr. Loi Nguyen, founder, senior vice president, Optical Interconnect, Inphi. “What we’re demonstrating to ICPs and CNPs is how they can use our ColorZ technology in a disaggregated transport solution that delivers cost efficiency and innovation cycles in excess of anything seen today. Key to achieving this is ADVA Optical Networking’s OLS and SmartAmp™ technology. This enables us to transport 100Gbit/s direct detect data streams at significantly lower cost points than any other competing solution.”
The joint demonstration will be displayed at Inphi’s booth (#3601) at OFC 2017 from March 21 until 23.
