Marvell: COLORZ® 800 ZR/ZR+ Pluggable Module

Feb. 21, 2024
Marvell®'s COLORZ® 800 family is a set of 800 Gbps ZR/ZR+ coherent pluggable optical modules for data center interconnects (DCIs).

Marvell®'s COLORZ® 800 family is a set of 800 Gbps ZR/ZR+ coherent pluggable optical modules for data center interconnects (DCIs). By doubling connectivity speed from 400 to 800 Gbps, COLORZ 800 expands ZR/ZR+ use cases while lowering capex and opex. COLORZ 800 incorporates the new Marvell Orion 800 Gbps coherent digital signal processor (DSP) and silicon photonics platform, integrating multiple discrete components into a single die, providing up to 800 Gbps bandwidth for DCI links up to 500km. COLORZ 800 can also be enabled for connections up to 1,200km operating at 400/600 Gbps to replace traditional transport equipment across a wider range of cloud infrastructure.

Judge’s Comment: “This product set is the first to market 800 ZR/ZR+ pluggable modules. They have excellent performance and may be broadly deployed in DCI applications.”
