Wednesday 9th December - Session 5 12:00 – 12:20 Yamaichi Electronics Evolution of Form Factors (for pluggable transceiver modules) from a connector maker’s perspective Speaker: David Binder, Business Development Manager Form Factors for pluggable transceiver modules have evolved with increasing data rates. Yamaichi Electronics has provided the leading designs for connectors to several MSAs: CFP2, CFP4, CFP8 and DSFP. We would like to share our idea of advantages of form factors in terms of density, thermal and data rate - from a connector maker’s perspective. Despite all evolution, pluggable modules might be replaced by other approaches in the future. E.g. On board optics, Co-packed optics, etc. We’d like to share our vision on how a connector maker tries to shape its development road map to overcome the post pluggable era. 12:20 – 12:40 Huber+Suhner Cubeoptics AG 100G, 400G. 400+G and 800G transmission standards Speaker: Dirk Götzl, RF Electronic For 100G, 400G and beyond many different standards and MSAs have been proposed in the last years. Up to now more than 30 different standards and MSAs have been published and new standards will be published in near future, making it difficult to have an overview. In the session we would like to give an overview over existing and future standards, as well as the activities of the different MSA groups. Regarding future standards we want to show which trends will be very important in the near future and will effect which standards and MSAs will get most important. Wednesday 9th December - Session 6 16:00 – 16:20 Juniper Networks Execution and deployment challenges in 400G ecosystem (SPand DC) and roadmap evolution towards 800G and different solution (pluggable, on board, co-package) Speaker: Jeff Maki, Distinguished Engineer -II

Wednesday 9th December - Session 6 16:40 – 17:00 CW-WDM MSA Driving a New Industry Standard for Optical Laser Sources to Advance AI, Data Center Efficiency, and other Advanced Applications of Optical Interconnect Speaker: Chris Cole, Chair, CW-WDM MSA; Advisor, II-VI Incorporated Today’s high volume datacom optics defined by IEEE and MSA standards specify serial or four WDM interfaces. Emerging advanced integrated optics applications, such as silicon photonics-based high- density co-packaged optics, optical computing, and AI, are expected to move to 8, 16, and 32 wavelengths. In this talk, we will discuss how standardizing higher wavelength counts in the O-band is a crucial part of an emerging ecosystem and the progress being made by the MSA to generate a set of specifications that will enable developers to choose what is optimum for their application, while allowing laser suppliers to invest in one technology platform. 17:00 – 17:20 Corning The role of optical fiber: On its 50 year anniversary what has changed? Speaker: Roshene McCool Optical transmission systems continue to evolve to meet the bandwidth needs of the modern world, but the attributes of the underlying fiber infrastructure remain critical for success. In this talk we will explore the fundamental attributes of fiber in the context of modern optical transmission systems. We will describe the continued importance of fiber parameters, such as, attenuation, chromatic dispersion, macrobend resilience and compatibility with other fiber types, while exploring the increasing relevance of other attributes in the context of new and emerging network technologies and applications. 17:20 – 17:40 EXFO Ethernet for 5G fronthaul and Open RAN: key for network evolution Speaker: Sebastien Prieur, Product Line Manager, EXFO 5G network evolution – from distributed to centralized and virtualized RANs – is driving more stringent transport and protocol requirements for latency, synchronization, quality of service (QoS) and other criteria, forcing operators to rethink their fronthaul strategy to meet these challenges. How is Ethernet evolving to address new 5G requirements, what role do Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and network slicing play in this service environment and how are standards, such as eCPRI and Open RAN (O-RAN) shaping the landscape. We will explore these compelling questions and address test and integration strategies for maximizing the benefits of 5G deployments. 17:40 – 18:00 Cablelabs Evolution of Cable Optical Access Networks Speaker: Alberto Campos, PhD Cable optical access evolution is driven by the ever-increasing traffic demand, greater number and diversity of services supported as well as demand on greater reliability and low latency. The implications of cable’s access network transformation on optical transport technologies and network architectures are reviewed. Network management requirements of the evolved optical access network as well as wireless-wired network convergence considerations are also presented. A focus area is the increasing role that coherent optics will play in cable’s optical access and the opportunities of these emerging use cases for the telecom and data center industries.

16:20 – 16:40 VIAVI

Test and validation of pluggable digital coherent optics Speaker: Paul Brooks, Director, Lab & Production Strategy Pluggable digital coherent optics are emerging for 400G class interconnect. With applications in both telecoms and now enterprise applications such as data center interconnect (DCI) wide spread deployment in a multi-vendor ecosystem will drive a healthy new challenges in test and validation. The presenter draws upon VIAVIs experience in test and validation of coherent pluggable modules and delves into the new challenges posed by 400G including DSP, module management and high speed electrical interfaces. The module complexity combined with aggressive price expectations and the requirements of an open, standards based ecosystem mean a new approach to test is critical to enable pluggable coherent optics to reach their market potential
