White Paper: Network Optimization in the 600G Era

By Acacia | Posted on December 18, 2018

Bandwidth demand from consumer and enterprise applications continues to grow. Cloud-based applications, data center interconnections, streaming videos, as well as applications on the horizon such as 8k ultra-high-density video, 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) are contributors to bandwidth growth.

Clearly, transmission speeds should stay one step ahead to ensure there is sufficient capacity to meet the demand. Data rates of 100G per wavelength once confined to the long-haul core portions of the network are now extending towards the edges of the network. Today, 600G per wavelength speeds are becoming available for use in the core as well as for data center interconnect (DCI) traffic.

Read this white paper to learn how today’s coherent capabilities address multiple network applications.
