Optical transceiver manufacturer, InnoLight Technology and test and measurement vendor, Spirent Communications have successfully validated 800G optical transceiver interoperability. 

The project successfully demonstrated an 800G link-up and line rate traffic transmission using IEEE 802.3ck OSFP for VSR application. InnoLight and Spirent engineers worked closely to develop and get the 800G link operational to emulate the traffic of hyperscale data centres.

Osa Mok, chief marketing officer at InnoLight said: ‘We were delighted to work with Spirent to showcase this latest step towards 800G interoperability. Spirent was able to help us create the environment to continuously test and validate the performance of our 800Gb/s OSFP DR8+ 2km SMP optical transceivers, which are such vital components of the future data centre and cloud network ecosystem.’

Abhitesh Kastuar, general manager, cloud and IP at Spirent Communications added: ‘We are seeing increasing demand from customers for 800G test solutions, and this partnership with InnoLight is a major step forward in proving interoperability and increasing customer confidence in this new technology. We are working at the bleeding edge of current high-speed Ethernet technology development to enable our customers to design, develop and eventually deploy 800G technology, and this successful interoperability demonstration will give early adopters the confidence to accelerate design and development of their 800G capable next-gen devices.’
