The CFP2-DCO offers higher performance with 200-Gbps operation and approximately half the power consumption in 100-Gbps mode. This provides users such as cloud and service providers with the opportunity to gain market share and competitive advantage by quickly meeting the growing demand for high-bandwidth applications such as video content or streaming services. In addition, pluggable DCO modules enable interoperability.
