OIF Q3 Meeting Focuses on 100G and 400G for Optical and Electrical Technologies

During last week’s OIF Q3, three new projects appeared, focusing on the 100G and 400G requirements for optical and electrical technologies. The Forum hosted a workshop to analyze the control plane technologies that foster Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and cloud computing.

PLL Working Group executives are currently examining the need for synchronizing data rates of 4x10G lanes with 4x25G lanes. The Multi-Link Gearbox 2.0 project maps an interface IC with fiber optic modules for devising means of technology integration with optical interfaces with increase in bandwidth up to 400G data rates.

A second new project represents an electro-mechanical footprint supporting Optical Engine (OE) modules. OEMs intend achieving optical switch from the front panel followed by incorporation within the equipment, and are exploring ways to connect with optically enabled potential multi-chip modules (MCM) packages, preparing for 50 Gbps connected devices and 3D stacking technology. This project will meet the footprint, power, and high-density connectivity requirements involved in those applications.

The OIF has started reviewing the 2009-published highly-potential 100G DWDM Framework Document for updating the demands in 100G Intermediate Reach market. This project will explore the application and demands based on power efficiency, affordable, and high-density approaches for next generation 100G transmission corresponding to Metro space.

The OIF hosted a workshop on emerging control plane industry initiatives. Varied industry organizations representatives were presented with topics related to Application-Layer Traffic Optimization (ALTO), Software-Defined Networking (SDN), OpenFlow, GMPLS/PCE, and Cross Stratum Optimization (CSO).
