Stephan Rettenberger, SVP of marketing and investor relations for ADVA Optical Networking, told FierceTelecom that the latest version builds upon its previous 200G capabilities. Adva is working closely with Acacia on the digital signal processing (DSP) front.
“Acacia is introducing a new generation of technology will give us 600 Gbps on a single wavelength,” Rettenberger said. “We believe that is the very best use of the technology that money can buy and we will be the early adopters of that technology.”
Rettenberger added that these new technologies will help raise the bar in the DCI market segment.
“I think this is the new industry benchmark and it’s the Acacia piece that makes the difference in this solution,” Rettenberger said. “It’s an interesting footprint for those who care about maximum spectral efficiency, highest possible throughput, and lowest power consumption and that’s the hero box where everyone is trying to make noise.”
