Acacia, now part of Cisco: Coherent Optical Interconnect 8

Feb. 6, 2022
Acacia’s Coherent Interconnect Module 8 (CIM 8) is the first 1.2T pluggable coherent module designed to enable network operators to maximize transmission data rate across a wide range of multi-haul network applications.
The industry's first 1.2T pluggable coherent module, Acacia’s Coherent Interconnect Module 8 (CIM 8) is designed to enable network operators to maximize transmission data rate across a wide range of multi-haul network applications including DCI, metro, long-haul, and subsea. By leveraging the latest 5-nm CMOS process node and Acacia’s advanced signal processing algorithms, the CIM 8 delivers exceptional performance with less than half the power per bit of competing solutions, the company says.

Judge’s Comment: “First 1.2T single carrier coherent pluggable in the market with great performance.”
