The optical industry is at an inflection point as coherent innovation forks in two different but equally important directions: high performance optics and coherent pluggable optics. This white paper is based on Heavy Reading’s 2022 Coherent Optics Survey results, and it provides the industry’s most in-depth look at the current state and future trajectory of coherent optical transmission, covering the following:
* Architectures and applications, including the benefits and challenges in coherent IPoDWDM
* Features and requirements for 400G systems
* 400G optical transport services
* Coherent 800G embedded and pluggable optics
* Coherent 100G pluggable optics
