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.
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.
A New Generation of 100G Pluggable Optics Starts With QSFP28 100G FR and PAM4
Gain insight into Cisco's vision for 100G pluggable optics of the future.
QSFP-DD800 MSA Paves The Way For 800G Links In Data Centers
A new 800G MSA is formed to support continued growth in traffic demand and the resulting need for higher link data rates in data centers. Once again, Cisco is there at the forefront.

Paymon Mogharabi explains the benefits of Cisco's new 40G "CSR" extended reach transceiver.
In Praise of the QSFP – from 40GbE to 400GbE and Beyond
Cisco is building and testing QSFP-DD systems and modules capable of driving 400GbE Ethernet electrical interfaces and cooling 20W modules with margin to address thermal and high-speed electrical challenges. These advances for the 400GbE are not at the limits of what is possible. Further innovation will reduce power as chips move to 7nm from the current 16nm processes.
