Direct detect vs. coherent transmission: ADVA presentation to explore DCI options

Niall Robinson outlines key benefits and drawbacks of competing technologies at Apricot 2018

  • Speaker: Niall Robinson, VP, global business development, ADVA
  • Topics: Recent trends in DCI optical networking
  • When: Wednesday, February 28, 2:30 p.m.
  • Where: Apricot 2018, Regal 2, Hotel Yak & Yeti, Durbar Marg, Kathmandu, Nepal

Data center interconnect solutions evolve rapidly, taking advantage of the latest optical transmission technologies. Recently, low-cost direct detection optical technologies have been introduced as an alternative to coherent transmission. In this presentation, Niall Robinson will compare and contrast these two solutions and identify benefits and drawbacks for different deployment applications such as cost, power and capacity implications.
