Data Center Interconnect (DCI) is one of the fastest growing applications of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology.

During this webinar we will review how DWDM is deployed today, and explain the key differences between traditional DWDM infrastructure and modern DCI networks. Next we introduce the 400G-ZR, and explain why its cost structure, flexibility, and ease of deployment will cause a fundamental disruption in the DCI market. Finally, we discuss the applications of Arista’s recently announced OSFP-Line System (OSFP-LS), which collapses a traditional optical line system into a simple MSA compliant OSFP module. We illustrate how the 400G-ZR, together with the OSFP-LS enable a drastically simpler and cost-effective DCI solution.
