VIAVI Supports InnoLight Demonstrate Performance of New 800G Coherent Transceiver Line at OFC 2024

  VIAVI is proud to work with InnoLight Technology Ltd, a global manufacturer of high-speed optical transceivers, in supporting them bring 800GE pluggable coherent optics to market, live demo in Booth #2013 at OFC 2024. The wide range of features and capabilities in Innolight’s 800G ZR and ZR+ products require breadth and depth test capabilities integrated in the VIAVI ONT XPM products. Delivering stable power and cooling InnoLight have a development platform to develop advanced 800GE pluggable optics.

  A VIAVI ONT-800 platform module, the ONT 800G XPM Module is a fully-integrated test product for pluggable digital coherent module development, validation and integration of 800GE OSFP and 800GE QSFP-DD transponders, including 800ZR and 800ZR+. Designed to meet big power(30w+) & cooling requirements for 800G coherent optics, the ONT 800G XPM supports applications such as dynamic skew, advanced error analysis and FEC stress tests.

  “InnoLight invested significantly in development of several generations of coherent product solutions and we are happy to announce our next generation 800G coherent product introduction” said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer of InnoLight.  “Our coherent products enable applications such as Data Center interconnect, Metro optical networking and mobile back haul. VIAVI testing solutions helped us to speed up development and product verifications.”

  InnoLight 800G ZR/ZR+ OSFP coherent transceivers are based on silicon photonics technology with state-of-the-art DSP, are fully-compliant with OSFP MSA, CMIS and OIF 800G ZR standards, and can reach more than 500km transmission distance.

  “VIAVI has been working with industry leaders to prove out coherent technology, and we are seeing a resulting increase in adoption from access networks to data centers,” said Tom Fawcett, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Lab and Production, VIAVI. “We are delighted to support InnoLight at OFC, using our advanced applications to help them develop and validate their new transceivers.”

  OFC attendees can visit InnoLight in booth #2625 and VIAVI in booth #2013 for a live demo of InnoLight’s newest OSFP800 ZR connected to the VIAVI ONT-800 XPM.
