OIF Product Showcase at OFC Features Cutting-Edge Products Utilizing OIF Supported Technology

Fifteen global OIF members are gathering at OFC in San Francisco, March 11-13, 2104 to showcase their cutting-edge products that utilize the latest OIF optical and electrical implementation agreements. The featured products include components, modules and other hardware supporting the OIF’s Physical and Link Layer (PLL) implementation agreements or ongoing projects.

The showcase will feature a wide range of products that incorporate higher speed, higher density and longer reach technology to enable next generation network performance and efficiency. Highlighted in the showcase will be OIF implementation agreements such as the Common Electrical Interfaces (CEI) for 28G very short reach (VSR), short reach (SR) and medium reach (MR) as well as the 25G long reach (LR). Also shown will be products that incorporate the OIF’s MultiLink Gearbox and components for next generation long haul and coherent optics.

“We are excited for the industry to reflect how many different OIF IA projects are being applied to real-world products that are either available today or are being readied for deployment,” said Brian Holden of Kandou Bus and the OIF’s Marketing Education & Awareness Committee co-chair. “It is encouraging to see the Forum’s work coming to fruition.”

The following companies are participating in the OIF Product Showcase in booth #2309 at OFC: Agilent Technologies, Amphenol, Applied Micro, Finisar, Inphi, Molex, MoSys, NEC, NeoPhotonics, Oclaro, Picometrix, Semtech, TE Connectivity, Xilinx and Yamaichi Electronics.
