Ultra-High Speed, Long Reach 400G Transmission Made Real
SESSION: Moving, Managing & Storing Data III
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums
TIME: 10:30AM - 11:00AM
SESSION CHAIR: William E. Allcock
Recently a number of computer communications research breakthroughs and clever techniques have made 400Gb/s a reality. This presentation will discuss these breakthroughs and provide a look at exactly how modifications to modulation techniques and forward error correction result in easily achieving 200G, and how efficient use of optical fiber spectrum allows 400G connectivity. While 400G can be achieved for very short spans, this talk will also explain methods to achieve 400G for wide area spans that meet needs of high-performance computing (HPC) beyond short hop or Metropolitan Network distances. Attendees of this session will gain a greater understanding about how these cutting edge transmissions systems work, and how they will greatly assist HPC network engineers in determining how to select and deploy these latest technologies. The session will also provide insights in how to determine which vendors have the depth and portfolio to deliver high-performance networks for the HPC community.
