Ethernet Alliance gears up for 50th anniversary plus 10G-800G demo at OFC 2023

The Ethernet Alliance will host a multivendor interoperability demonstration in booth 5417 at OFC 2023 which captures Ethernet technology’s 50-year track record of success, while illustrating the need for a “living lab” of next-generation technologies, and setting the stage for its next evolutionary phase. Featuring 18 different participating member companies, the demo spans diverse Ethernet technologies, ranging from 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) to 800GbE.

This year’s interoperability display will feature a live network between the Ethernet Alliance and the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF), EXFO Inc., Spirent Communications, and Viavi Solutions Inc. booths. The network will leverage single-mode optical fibers with high-speed traffic originating from an array of switches, routers, interconnects, including copper and optical cables. It will also showcase various interconnects using multiple pluggable form factors such as OSFP, QSFP-DD, QSFP, and SFP, and multiple interface types including OIF 400ZR, OpenZR+ MSA 400ZR+, and 800G-ETC-CR8.
