CREDO’s Robust Electrical and Optical 100G PAM4 Connectivity on Full Display at OFC 2019

gbaf1news

CREDO, a global innovation leader in Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes) technology which delivers high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 200G, and 400G port enabled networks today announced it will conduct multiple live demonstrations featuring the Credo low power, high performance 112Gbps (G) PAM4 SerDes technologies at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference which starts today at the San Diego, CA Convention Center.

New high demand workloads such as artificial intelligence are moving to the cloud and are driving the need to deliver dramatic increases in throughput overall for datacenter, enterprise and high performance computing environments, said Rajan Pai, vice president of system applications at Credo. Our 112G PAM4 demonstrations with industry leading standards bodies are laying the groundwork for providing ubiquitous 112G lane-rate connectivity at the performance and scale required.

With increased demand for global network bandwidth, the hyper-scale cloud providers are in a position to consume the next generation of higher capacity, 112G SerDes enabled switches as soon as they can get their hands on them. Cloud providers are already operating at extremely high rates of utilization and would welcome a higher performance, intelligent and more efficient infrastructure boost. The key connectivity technology building blocks are in place to move quickly to 25.6Tbps of switching performance based on 256 lanes of 112G SerDes.

Credos 112G single lane rate electrical and optical connectivity technologies are being well received, said Jeff Twombly, vice president of business development at Credo. End customers continue to push for significant increases in network bandwidth and the industry as a whole will benefit greatly by a rapid move to single lane rate, end-to-end 112G deployments.
