Cisco @ OFC – Daring Improvements to Energy Your Future-Prepared Community


Capability, bandwidth, open, convergence, automation, simplification, sustainability – the trade buzzwords that reign in in the present day’s optical networking ethos. As we head to OFC, Cisco isn’t simply “speaking the discuss” – we’re strolling that discuss backed by deployed options and trade buyer trials.

Once we first launched Routed Optical Networking round 28 months in the past, there was anticipated skepticism, fueled by differing trade opinions. But in the present day, Cisco now has greater than 24 Routed Optical Networking deployments, 12 of that are public. And, the answer was the Gentle Studying “Main Lights” winner in December, named “The Most Progressive Routing and Switching Resolution.”

The Shiny ZR+ is now accessible to develop Routed Optical Networking to brownfield networks so as to add extra capability. Vodafone Turkey turned the primary operator in Turkey to check 400G speeds with a number of suppliers and community layers. Within the trial, carried out utilizing Acacia Shiny 400ZR+ modules and Cisco routers, a pace of 400 Gbps was achieved with optical routing between Vodafone’s information facilities in Tuzla and Esenyurt. Moreover, Arelion was the first community operator to efficiently display 400G coherent connections between Cisco 8000 and NCS 5700 router platforms over third-party open line system utilizing Shiny 400ZR+ modules supporting excessive transmit energy.

Acacia (now part of Cisco) additionally not too long ago shipped a 1.2 Tbit/s optical module. Crossing the Tbit/s threshold is an optical networking trade milestone. As we’ve been saying, Cisco believes in and is dedicated to open networking. On the present, we’ll have dwell demos on:  the Acacia Coherent Interconnect Module 8 (CIM 8) powered by the Jannu, our new NCS 1014 with the two.4T WDM line card based mostly on CIM 8, the Cisco NCS 1010 C&L band Optical Line System (with C&L band ZR+ optics), and Shiny ZR+ and the QSFP-DD OLS pluggable.

Cisco can be taking part in three present flooring interoperability demonstrations this yr: OFCnet, OIF, and OpenROADM.

The expertise and innovation for co-packaged optics continues to evolve in help of next-generation information middle architectures. Whereas nonetheless within the early phases, co-packaged optics provides important energy benefits versus conventional change designs, with potential enhancements in density and latency.  Cisco’s experience in programs, ASICs, and optics makes it uniquely positioned to guide the trade within the development of this expertise.

Along with these and greater than 10 OFC workshops and panels, Cisco will showcase our newest Routed Optical Networking function units, together with PLE and automation; community as a Sensor; and our 400G and 800G Optics portfolio.

We’re enthusiastic about what the longer term holds and welcome the chance that will help you navigate this journey. Be a part of us on the Cisco sales space #6401 to debate these matters and extra. To arrange a gathering upfront, e mail us.
