“By leveraging the combined capabilities of Innovium’s TERALYNX 12.8Tbps switch ASIC and Molex’s BiPass I/O technology, we are highlighting better performance and more operational efficiencies for our customer’s evolving data center needs,” said Chris Kapuscinski, global product manager, Molex. “The BiPass and Innovium demo shows that even at 112 Gbps, copper is still a viable and more economical option.”

“To support advances within the market and address the evolving needs of customers, we are excited to collaborate with these industry leaders. Together, we are showcasing technology innovations that focus on the next-generation of high-speed, high-density networking.” said Scott Sommers, group product manager at Molex and co-chair of the QSFP-DD MSA.

“To enable the 400Gbps market it is becoming imperative that suppliers of fiber optic transceivers and complimentary physical layer silicon interoperate” said Adam Carter, Chief Commercial Officer at FIT’s Fiber Optics Communications Business. “By working with the Innovium’s TERALYNX™ switch allows customers to deploy 400Gbps networks faster knowing that interoperability has been characterized and validated by both companies”

“There is a significant demand for higher bandwidth in hyper-scale data centers. 400G optical transceivers are being rapidly adopted to scale bandwidth and provide better price performance,” said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer of InnoLight Technology. “We are excited to collaborate with Innovium, a leading provider of 12.8T switch solution and perform interoperability testing of our 400G QSFP-DD FR4 and DR4 transceiver modules with Innovium’s TERALYNX switch silicon.

“It is important for us to demonstrate interoperability between our transceivers and other products,” said Richard Huang, Eoptolinks CEO. “In 400G systems, interoperability of components becomes more complex and we are delighted to achieve another milestone. Successful interoperability reduces risk in product development and simplifies network rollout for our customers.”

“We are excited to partner with Innovium to demonstrate the performance of our unique interconnect technologies designed with advanced features to achieve the speed, signal integrity, EMI containment and thermal efficiencies needed to ramp up to next-generation equipment and networking platforms, This collaboration highlights our vision to build relationships that benefit our customers and partners, and provide flexible solutions to their toughest challenges”, said Henning Hansen, Luxshare-ICT, VP Global sales & advanced technologies.

“We continue to leave our mark on an ever-changing cloud scale networks ecosystem. Together with our partners in the industry, we aim to bring next-generation solutions to our customers and provide the high-speed connectivity they require,” said Manish Mehta, EVP of PLM and Sales at Source Photonics.

“We are excited about the progress Innovium has made with TERALYNX, its scalable Ethernet switch silicon with up to 12.8Tbps performance. We look forward to working with them to ensure interoperability between our 100G/400G modules and Innovium’s switch silicon,” said Chris Pfistner, Vice President,  product line management, Datacom at Lumentum.”

“Luxtera is the global leader in Silicon Photonics, with its PSM4 transceivers serving a crucial role in cloud computing and enterprise networking,” said Greg Young, President and CEO of Luxtera. “We are excited to partner with Innovium and the TERALYNX family of Ethernet switch silicon, to offer even more scalable and cost-effective data center networks. Together these solutions can offer industry leading performance and scalability, and drive new optimization and innovation in datacenter architectures.”

“Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (AOI) is a leading provider of fiber-optic network interface products, which we supply to the majority of the largest hyperscale data center customers in the world,” said Dr. Thompson Lin, Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. founder, president and CEO. “We are excited to collaborate with Innovium to provide compelling optical solutions for Innovium TERALYNX™, the industry’s first 12.8 Tbps Ethernet switch silicon family, that will enable many unique system designs such as 1RU 32 port 100/200G, 2RU 64 port 100/200G, 4RU 128 port 100G and 1RU 32 port 400G switch to meet the most demanding data center customer needs.”

Inphi and Innovium Announce Range of Solutions Using TERALYNX Switch Silicon with Inphi PAM4 Based Optics Modules and Gearbox/Retimers

“Credo’s Active Ethernet Cables in conjunction with innovative 12.8T switch solutions from Innovium are intended to help accelerate the deployment of 400G Data Center infrastructure. In addition to superior cost and power performance, Credo AEC’s are uniquely capable of providing Gearbox functionality within the cable to increase Data Center architecture flexibility”, said Job Lam, Credo Co-Founder and inventor of the AEC. “The AEC’s allow for easy retrofit upgrade paths as the 400G eco-system evolves. The deterministic nature of the solution also eliminates copper variability inherent in Direct Attached Copper Cables (DACs) and insures error free data transfer”

“First time success of the organically developed, low power, high-speed IP that operates at 25G NRZ, 50G and 100G PAM4 in the Telluride family of products establishes MaxLinear as a credible partner in the PAM4 and high-speed connectivity ecosystem,” said Will Torgerson, Vice President and General Manager of MaxLinear’s Broadband Group. “The successful interoperation between two key enablers of the technology confirms that ecosystem is coming together very quickly for industry transition towards 100G single lambda and 400Gbps optics connectivity within data centers.”

“This interoperability demonstration illustrates the companies in the 400GE ecosystem working together to support the evolution of 400GE,” said Sunil Kalidindi, vice president of product management at Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group. “These tests show the versatility of the AresONE for testing high density, switch silicon and different types of optical transceivers for 400GE and 200GE speeds as well as the forthcoming 4x100GE and 8X50GE multi-rate Ethernet speeds that these optics will eventually support. As the ecosystem evolves, new implementations of 100GE and 50GE based on PAM4 signaling will enable companies with data centers to realize the benefits of 400GE no matter where these high-speed networking products are deployed within the data center.”

“It’s an exciting time as Ethernet speeds continue to evolve, and customers continue to design and develop solutions to meet future network requirements,” said Abhitesh Kastuar, general manager of Spirent’s Cloud and IP Business Unit. “Our innovation and test capabilities make Spirent the right partner for companies that are racing to bring their leading-edge network technologies to market first. We have been working with all the major network equipment vendors to deliver new chipsets so they can design and develop next-generation 400G products, enabling networking and services vendors to deploy faster and more reliably.”
