ADVA tackles challenges of transitioning to 400G data center interconnect in NGON presentation

Niall Robinson to outline how 400G era is reshaping data centers and DCI networks

  • Speakers: Niall Robinson, VP, global business development, ADVA
  • Topics: The 400G transition
  • When: Wednesday, June 27, 4:50 p.m.
  • Where: NGON & DCI Europe, Acropolis, Nice, France

The transition to 400Gbit/s is rapidly changing how data centers and DCI networks are designed and built. At the heart of this is the battle in the plug space between two competing multi-source agreements (MSAs) both vying to be the form factor of the 400Gbit/s era.

In this presentation, Niall Robinson will show how the debate centers on quad small form factor pluggable double density (QSFP-DD) optical transceivers vs. octal small form factor pluggable (OSFP) optical transceivers. He will also predict how things will develop from both a client and networking perspective.
