Technical Paper

Coherent Optics at 400G, 800G, and Beyond

The advent of coherent detection revolutionized the dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) market and led to a set of sustaining innovations over the past decade that delivered ever-increasing capacity and lower cost per bit. Now, the optical networking industry is hitting an inflection point as coherent innovation forks in two different but equally important directions. This white paper provides the industry’s most in-depth look at the current state and future trajectory of coherent optical transmission along both innovation tracks.
