Luxshare and Keysight Collaborate to Deliver Successful Interoperability Test with 112G Electrical Lane and 400GE DR4 QSFP Optical Transceiver

Luxshare Technologies

Enables supply chain to validate readiness of data center equipment in complex 800 Gigabit Ethernet environments

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Luxshare-Technologies today announced a collaboration with Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that provides advanced design solutions and validation to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, to provide an advanced solution to validate the interoperability of data center equipment in complex 800 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) environments. The companies will highlight the demo at DesignCon 2022 in San Jose, CA at LuxshareTech booth #839.

Data Center Operators (DCOs) Turn to 800GE to Accelerate the Switching Silicon Upgrade Cycle to Achieve Power Saving Benefits and Physical Interconnect Links Need to Upgrade to Electrical Signaling 112G PAM4. This creates unique challenges where all network points must be tested, including 800GE ports and 112G interconnect per lane.

“The move to 800GE presents DCOs and supply chain vendors with new challenges to validate chips, optical transceivers or network equipment port electronics,” said Ram Periakaruppan, vice president and general manager of the Keysight Network Test and Security Solutions group. The combination of the Keysight G800GE test system and LuxshareTech’s state-of-the-art photonic integration technology solves interoperability challenges and enables the data center community to accelerate validation of 112G electrical path optical transceivers and network infrastructure.

The collaboration for 800GE readiness testing in 2x400GE mode includes the Keysight G800GE FEC Aware and Compliance test system using the LuxshareTech 400GE QSFP112 DR4 optical transceiver. The need for higher-speed pluggable optical modules is clear, and Keysight supports the 800GE ecosystem to validate high-bandwidth interconnect implementations, including OSFP, QSFP-DD, and QSFP form factors. In parallel, LuxshareTech will soon continue to offer 800G/1.6T optics based on an integrated photonics platform with low-power electronics.

“Keysight’s G800GE test system meets both the performance and verification needs of 112G electrical pathway infrastructure and interconnection,” said Mike Gao, General Manager of LuxshareTech Opto-electronic BU. “We are extremely pleased to bring to market LuxshareTech’s industry-leading 400GE QSFP112 DR4 optical transceiver with silicon photonics technology, and validated using Keysight’s G800GE QSFP-DD800 BER and system.
