Next week at the OFC Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition in Los Angeles, Xilinx will be in the Ethernet Alliance booth demonstrating the industry’s first, standard-based, multi-vendor 400GE network. A 400GE MAC and PCS instantiated in a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGA will be driving a Finisar 400GE CFP8 optical module, which in turn will communicate with a Spirent 400G test module over a fiber connection.

 

In addition, Xilinx will be demonstrating:

  • The world’s first complete FlexE 1.0 solution showcasing bonding, sub-rating and channelization on UltraScale+ FPGAs.

 

  • LLDP packet snooping on transport line cards to allow SDN controllers to build network topology maps, which aid data-center network automation.

 

  • Optical technology abstraction in DCI transport.

 

If you’re visiting OFC, be sure to stop by the Xilinx booth (#1809).
