Group crafts spec for 100G networking News & Analysis 8/13/2008 Post a comment The Optical Internetworking Forum has taken the first giant step toward defining a standard for long distance networking at 100 Gbits/second, choosing a modulation scheme in an effort that aims to kick start development on integrated optical modules.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
