What You Need to Know About 800G Signaling For Pluggable Optics
The re-branded Ethernet Technology Consortium has released a specification for 800G signaling. This goes hand in hand with the new QSFP-DD800 form factor MSA.
How to Support Future Traffic Growth: New 800G Optics MSA
The new QSFP-DD800 form factor MSA lays the foundation for 800G Ethernet pluggable optics.
Now! Worry-Free NICs in Your Servers With Cisco Optics
Cisco Optics are now qualified on Cisco UCS servers even when using 3rd party NICs such as those from Intel, Mellanox, and QLogic. This is a significant development for data center operators who are more and more reliant on cables and pluggable optics as SFP and QSFP technology progress, and cloud applications dominate.
Extended Reach 100G Optics – Which One Is Best For Me?
Since the introduction of 100G pluggable optics several years ago, a great variety of reaches and form factors became available. Among the most confusing reaches are the Extended Reach variants. In this blog, we are going to explain what variants are available in the Cisco Optics portfolio, and the differences between them.
How To Make 100G Pluggable Optics In Massive Volume
Here's how to ensure your 100G optics are forward compatible. It's all about simplifying designs and standards so that manufacturers can support volumes equivalent to today's 10G SFP+ pluggable optics. The key is to use single-lambda 100G.
Why Single-Lambda 100G Is Just What Networks Need in Pluggable Optics
The Single-Lambda 100G optics standards will be instrumental in the development of the next generation of 100G pluggable optics.
Quenching the Never-ending Thirst for Capacity and Scale
Here’s what we need: build a data center that can support billions of unique server sessions per day. Also, let’s have it bring up personalized images, video, and other rich media content for hundreds of millions of people, simultaneously, the second they hit our servers. Learn how Cisco is quenching the thirst for capacity and scale.
