Precision OT Successfully Participates in  Multi-Vendor Interoperability Demonstration at OFC 2024

Precision OT recently participated in the OIF PLL Interop Demo hosted during OFC 2024 in San Diego, California. As the largest multi-vendor interoperability demonstration OIF has hosted at the event,  47 OIF members showcased breakthrough solutions in speed, power and density in four key areas: 800ZR and OpenZR+ optics; Energy Efficient Interfaces (EEI); Common Electrical I/O (CEI) channels; and Common Management Interface Specification (CMIS) implementations. In particular, Precision OT contributed OpenZR+ optics to the demonstration and testing.

Network operator interest in IPoDWDM and 400Gbps service has been skyrocketing. Specifically for purposes past DCI, including metro, regional, and long-haul purposes involving P2P extended reach and multi-hop network architectures. However, leveraging OpenZR+ optics has traditionally brought challenges for network operators used to having different teams for IP and Optical/Transport systems.

The work done at the OIF PLL Interop Demo is advancing the OpenZR+ landscape to the next level in terms of interoperability and integration, making it simpler for end-users to navigate the new frontier of 400G.

“It’s always exciting to get together with some of the brightest minds in the optical networking industry,” says Pol Torres Compta, Principal Field Application Engineer at Precision OT. “It’s amazing to see how a commitment to interoperability and software support for third-party pluggables is creating a fully interoperable ecosystem for OpenZR+. We were exceptionally pleased with the results of the demonstration. This will continue to pay off for the world’s cable and telecom operators as well as transport network providers as they drive 400G adoption for a variety of applications.”

The company has hit the ground running in 2024, most recently announcing that their Genesee Dispersion Compensation ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) Technology was awarded a 4.0 honoree status from Lightwave Innovation Reviews.

Additionally, the company’s groundbreaking solution, OpenPath™, which enables a more open Passive Optical Network (PON) ecosystem, is generally available. Launched in September 2023, the solution is setting new standards for flexibility and efficiency in the deployment and management of 10 Gigabit Symmetrical Passive Optical Networks (XGS-PON).
