Keeping the Pulse on 400GE in the Data Center

Nicole Faubert 2018.10.29

At the heart of every data center is the transceiver. Large hyperscale data centers have more than 50,000 optical fibers in them. With a transceiver at each end of the fiber, these data centers house

400GE is Revolutionary, Not Evolutionary

Nicole Faubert 2018.08.23

Next generation optical transceivers are expected to use less power per gigabit, be less expensive per gigabit, and operate at four times the speed of 100GE transceivers. It is rather puzzling how 400
