OFC 2021 Interoperability Demonstration


EA@OFC21 Interop Demo Diagram Handout

Interoperability Demonstration Description: 

This demonstration is all about Ethernet. New 400G devices are interoperating with each other over all the mediums you could expect to see Ethernet in (DACs, AOCs, Optics, Backplane) as well as mature ports that would be in the field for years. We also have a glimpse of what’s to come, in the form of Amphenol/TE Connectivity 800G channels driven by Marvell PHY going into Tektronix/Keysight equipment. There are multiple touchpoints of interoperability in every nook and cranny of this fabric; Juniper Networks optics are connecting to Broadcom optics in Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks and Marvell switches through Amphenol, Panduit and TE Connectivity cabling while being driven through by Spirent and Keysight traffic generators and a Teledyne LeCroy protocol analyzer.
