OIF Launches Two New Projects — Higher Baud Rate Coherent Driver Modulator and Low-Rate Service Multiplexing Using FlexE and 400ZR White Paper — at Q3 Meeting

Meeting also featured industry talk from Andrew Schmitt, Cignal AI, and initial discussions on next generation network operator requirements

FREMONT, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 14, 2019 — Member activity at this year’s OIF Q319 Technical and MA&E Committees Meeting in Montreal, Canada resulted in the launch of two new projects — a higher baud rate coherent driver modulator and a white paper detailing low-rate service multiplexing using FlexE and 400ZR.

Andrew Schmitt, founder and directing analyst, Cignal AI gave member attendees a brief overview of emerging pluggable coherent technologies and the opportunity this new market presents and had the opportunity to speak with members about current and upcoming OIF work.

“It’s clear that OIF is not resting after a successful effort to standardize 400ZR, proven by the launch of two new projects at the recent Q3 meeting,” said Schmitt. “Also, as interest in pluggable coherent solutions grows, it is good to see OIF soliciting feedback from additional network operators in order to shape requirements for next generation standards.”

NEW PROJECTS

The “Higher Baud Rate Coherent Driver Modulator” project will define a new version of the Coherent Driver Modulator supporting at least 96 Gbaud for the low modem implementation penalty segment of the coherent market for single optical carrier line rates beyond 400 Gbit/s. Designed for higher data rates and longer reach and optimized for performance, this project is the next generation of the High Bandwidth Coherent Driver Modulator (HB-CDM) Implementation Agreement (IA) published last year.

The second project start is for a white paper on low-rate service multiplexing using FlexE and 400ZR aimed at eliminating ambiguity and providing clarification on how 400ZR should be leveraged in multiplexing applications. Various network operators are looking for a multiplexing scheme to support lower-rate Ethernet clients (e.g. 4x100GE) into a 400ZR coherent line. This technical white paper will educate the market on how FlexE can be used to aggregate low-rate Ethernet services (e.g. 4x100GE) into 400ZR interfaces.
