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.

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.
