it seems like the integration is in the package level, by combining at least 2 chips. This is not a breakthrough in the technology. More of an evolution that a revolution. But definitley this increased level of integration is welcome. We can use any increase in throughput and reduction in BER - it will open up new possibilities.

Correct, it's an evolution (a welcome one) but not a revolutionary breakthrough.

can I make plea for somebody to quote the symbol rate rather than (or in addition to) the bit rate when showcasing these technologies? some info on the modulation schemes employed would be good too

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
