CFP2 transceiver technology is being widely adopted in today's optical networks because it features low power consumption in a form factor that is half the size of first generation CFP products, and Oclaro is well positioned to help customers lead this next phase of high-speed 100G networking.  The live demo being showcased at OFC demonstrates interoperability with a Xilinx Virtex-7 HT FPGA and will be the industry's first demonstration featuring an MSA-compliant CFP2 and an FPGA with a direct 25Gbps x 4ch electrical interface according to the recently released OIF CEI-28G-VSR specifications. Using a direct electrical interface without a separate gearbox lowers the overall system cost and is expected to accelerate the overall deployment of 100Gbps client side interfaces.

"To deliver on the promise of 100G and beyond, our customers are demanding higher density, lower power and increased performance – all of which are enabled by higher data rate solutions such as CFP2 transceivers," said Tadayuki Kanno, President, Oclaro Japan, Inc & GM, Modules & Devices Business Unit.  "With our live CFP2 demo and extended 100G product portfolio, we are establishing a leadership position in the market and highlighting the vast technology resources, vertical integration, expertise and product breadth that Oclaro has to offer customers to keep them at the forefront of innovation and competiveness."

"By using the Xilinx Virtex(R)-7 HT FGPA and Oclaro CFP2 optical modules at 25.78Gbps, we have demonstrated a robust integration of 100G networking systems through real world CFP2 implementations," said Gilles Garcia, Director of Wired Communications at Xilinx. "Reducing bill of material cost, power, footprint and board complexity are achieved through the combination of Xilinx 28Gbps capable GTZ transceivers and Oclaro optics thereby enabling the move towards a smarter network."

About the Oclaro CFP2 Transceiver
Announced September 2012, the Oclaro CFP2 transceiver is roughly 50% the size of all other CFP solutions on the market, which increases system front panel port density from 4 ports to 8 ports.  The smaller size of the CFP2 transceiver is achieved by reducing the number of electrical lanes from 10 to 4 by applying a 25Gbps per channel electrical interface instead of 10Gbps and hence removing the gearbox from the module. In order to achieve the smaller size, more integrated in-house optical components are used based on Oclaro's leading-edge optical device technologies. In addition, the CFP2 transceiver can optically interoperate with first and second-generation CFP transceivers, which allows customers to quickly and cost-effectively transition to CFP2 designs as market requirements evolve. The CFP2 is designed to be fully compliant with the relevant MSA, IEEE and ITU-T specifications.

When scaling agile / Scrum, we invariable run into the alignment vs autonomy problem. In short: you cannot have autonomous self directing teams if they have no clue in what direction they should go, or even shorter: Alignment breeds autonomy. But how do we create alignment? and what tools can we use to quickly evaluate if what we want to do is part of the mission or better left out? Niel Nickolaisen created the Purpose Alignment model and I use it with innovation labs in large enterprises to de...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Large enterprises today are juggling an enormous variety of network equipment. Business users are asking for specific network throughput guarantees when it comes to their critical applications, legal departments require compliance with mandated regulatory frameworks, and operations are asked to do more with shrinking budgets. All these requirements do not easily align with existing network architectures; hence, network operators are continuously faced with a slew of granular parameter change req...
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.
