Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. and Innovium Announce Interoperability of 400G SR8 and 400G DR4 2km transceivers breakout to 100G FR with TERALYNX™ Switch
As data center operators continue to demand greater bandwidth, the migration from 100G to 400G will be the next vital step in data center architecture. 400G transceivers can interconnect between a current 100G network and the next-generation 400G network. They can be routed to four 100G QSFP28 DR/FR transceivers, allowing data centers to operate with a mixture of 400G and 100G products in the aggregation and core layers within the datacenter.
“As the leader in data center optical interconnect solutions, AOI is very pleased to work with Innovium to demonstrate the ability of our family of 400G solutions to work seamlessly in TERALYNX™-based switches,” commented
“As data center customers add 400G connectivity to their 100G infrastructure, they are looking for validated and interoperable solutions to gain confidence and reduce deployment timelines,” said
