SAN JOSE, Calif., March 5, 2019 — Innovium, Inc., a leading provider of networking switch solutions for data centers, and InnoLight Technology (Suzhou) Ltd, a leader in data center optics, today announces the successful interoperability of InnoLight’s 400G QSFP-DD FR4 and DR4 transceivers with Innovium’s industry-leading 12.8Tbps TERALYNX™ switch silicon product family. The companies will demonstrate the solutions live at Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference and Exhibition, to be held March 5-7, 2019 at the San Diego, CA Convention Center.
Large scale data centers in public and private clouds have a major impact on our IT landscape today and continue to grow very rapidly. Further, network traffic in these large scale data centers is exploding, driven by deployments of artificial intelligence/machine learning, AR/VR, distributed micro-services/container based applications, IP storage, 5G and video. Customers are embracing 400G connectivity for higher scale connectivity, growing bandwidth needs and power & cost efficiencies.
“There is a significant demand for higher bandwidth in hyper-scale data centers. 400G optical transceivers are being rapidly adopted to scale bandwidth and provide better price performance,” said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer of InnoLight Technology. “We are excited to collaborate with Innovium, a leading provider of 12.8T switch solution and perform interoperability testing of our 400G QSFP-DD FR4 and DR4 transceiver modules with Innovium’s TERALYNX switch silicon.
“Innolight has a comprehensive set of 100/400G optical transceiver portfolio for data center customers,” said Amit Sanyal, VP of Product Management and Marketing at Innovium. “Innovium, the only provider of a low-latency, programmable 12.8Tbps switch silicon in the market, is excited to partner with InnoLight to offer the industry a robust solution for 400G connectivity that is proven and ready to deploy.”
