Meeting booming bandwidth demands presents major challenges. But are applications for 600 and 800Gbit/s ready to play a role and who are the users? What’s the current state of the art and potential future limits for modulation, baud rate, FEC and PCS?

In this discussion, Jörg-Peter Elbers and the panel will explore the current operational demands as well as potential strategies and technology offerings designed to support adoption of coherent transmission. They will discuss technology evolution on the component level and compare the economics of high-speed channels vs. multiple lower-speed channels.
