Marvell and LightRiver to Showcase Optical Connectivity Solutions at ECOC Exhibition

The  European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) is taking place this week from Monday, September 19 through Thursday, September 22 at Messe Basel in Basel, Switzerland. 

Marvell, a world-leading infrastructure technology provider, alongside LightRiver, is showcasing its comprehensive networking solution portfolio at the show, including cutting-edge PAM4 DSPs, coherent DSPs, TIAs, drivers, switches and PHYs. More information about the demonstration can be found below:

  • In collaboration with Smartoptics and LightRiver, Marvell will demonstrate the IPoDWDM capabilities of its COLORZ® II QSFP-DD 400G ZR+ optics for Metro DWDM applications. The live demo at Marvell’s booth will highlight open, disaggregated multi-vendor interoperability of a 3-node ROADM ring, including the optical domain orchestration and control software layer.
  • Marvell will demonstrate its industry-leading 5nm 112G Long Reach (LR) SerDes designed for demanding cloud-optimized applications.
  • Marvell will showcase its Spica™ PAM4 DSP, the industry’s first 800Gbps PAM4 DSP to support 800G optical modules in QSFP-DD800 and OSFP form factors for inside-the-data center optical interconnect and its AtlasOne™ PAM4 DSP, the industry’s first 50Gbps PAM4 DSP for 5G RAN fronthaul interconnect.
  • Optical modules from across the ecosystem powered by Marvell technologies and silicon solutions will be on display.
  • OIF members will showcase interoperability in four critical areas at this year’s ECOC 2022. The work of OIF and its members in 400ZR optics, Co-Packaging architectures, Common Electrical I/O (CEI) channels and Common Management Interface Specification (CMIS) implementations will be demonstrated – live and static – at OIF’s booth, #701.

Xi Wang, Vice President of Optical DSP Business Unit, Marvell will also present on the Evolution of Optical Connectivity to 3.2T on Wednesday, September 21. A full description of the session is below:

Optical connectivity is the foundation of today’s internet infrastructure and has enabled the emergence of hyperscale data centers and a new era of wireless communication. The insatiable demand for cloud-based services is continuously driving the relentless need for data center hardware to have higher bandwidth capacity, with lower power consumption and smaller footprints. Just as data centers begin their transition to 400G and 800G, the bar is rising towards the next evolution of 1.6T and 3.2T, with the same demands for high performance and low power with minimal financial impact. This presentation will discuss the underlying technologies needed to enable 1.6T and 3.2T, and how technological advancements in both electronics and optics will enable a higher level of integration that will have a lasting impact for future generations of optical connectivity.
