OFS has partnered on multiple OFC demonstrations including:
- In collaboration with OFS partners in the Terabit BiDi MSA group, 800G BiDi performance is
demonstrated over 100m of OFS multimode fiber at OFC ’23 in the Broadcom booth 6425.
- Demonstration of 100G/lane linear drive over OFS high-speed optical fiber link enabling green alloptical connectivity for datacenter at Macom booth 3927.
- Coordinated demonstration through NTT and part of Open Network (including Open ROADM and
Open ZR+ demonstration ) in association with OFCnet. In open architecture, it is essential to
maximize OSNR in the amplified link to ensure the best performance and increase information
capacity. OFS provided 1,000 km of ULL (Ultra Low Loss) fiber for a bi-directional live transmission
demonstration employing multiple vendor 400Gb/s pluggable modules at IOWN networking hub
- Coordinated booth-to-booth quantum bit transmission between Ciena optical gear and Qubitekk
quantum equipment includes 1 km OFS 2-fiber standard fiber patch cable for the support of a public channel, and 1 km of a 2-fiber polarization-maintaining fiber upjacketed cordage to support qubit transmission.
