Demand for High Speed Drives 200G Modulation Standards

Demand for High Speed Drives 200G Modulation Standards
by Tom Simon on 01-03-2022 at 10:00 am

200G Modulation

Right now, the most prevalent generation of Ethernet for data centers is 400 Gbps, with the shift to 800 Gbps coming rapidly. It is expected that by 2025 there will be 25 million units of 800 Gbps shipped. Line speeds of 100G are used predominantly for 400 Gbps Ethernet – requiring 4 lanes each. Initially 800 Gbps will simply … Read More
