TEC37 E18: Routing and Optical Technologies, Converged


Over the past 10 years there have been tremendous advancements in Optical and Routing technologies. We have gone from large, power hungry 40G and 100G line card-based modules, to today’s extremely power efficient, 400G-ZR+ pluggable optics. By pairing 400G-ZR+ optics with high density, low power routing platforms, we wonder: have the optical and routing stars finally aligned? Listen in as host Robb Boyd and WWT experts, John Chiarini and Mike DiVincenzo discuss.
