OIF’s ECOC multi-vendor interop demo to feature 39 companies

Aug. 10, 2023
Demos will highlight interoperability work in four areas - 400ZR+, Co-Packaging solutions, CEI-112G & CEI-224G and CMIS implementations.

OIF is leveraging the ECOC 2023 trade show, which will be held October 2-4 in Glasgow, Scotland, to conduct its multi-vendor interoperability demonstration. The event will include 39 companies that will participate in live and static interoperability demos at OIF’s booth #304, highlighting advancements in four key technology areas: 400ZR+ optics, Co-Packaging solutions, Common Electrical I/O (CEI) channels and Common Management Interface Specification (CMIS) implementations.

During ECOC, OIF will also continue its commemoration of 25 years dedicated to driving meaningful progress in the industry.
