Inphi Sampling New COLORZ® II a?? Industrya??s First 400ZR QSFP-DD Transceiver for Cloud Data Center Interconnects

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inphi CorporationA (NYSE: IPHI), a leader in high-speed data movement interconnects, today announced engineering sampling of COLORZA® II, the industry first 400ZR QSFP-DD pluggable coherent transceiver for cloud data center interconnects (DCIs) to major cloud operators and OEMs. COLORZ II enables large cloud operators to connect metro data centers at a fraction of the cost of traditional coherent transport systems and allows switch and router companies to offer the same density for both coherent DWDM and client optics in the same chassis. This eliminates a layer of network connectivity that was previously required and supports high capacity DWDM connectivity directly from data center switches.A  A 
COLORZ II 400ZR QSFP-DD is a cumulation of several industry firsts, including:

400G single-chip, coherent Silicon Photonics Integrated Circuit (PIC) that includes all transmit and receive functions

Innovative, low cost, passive alignment of fiber to the PIC that eliminates the complicated active alignment, using traditional optics

Low power, high performance, 7nm CMOS-based coherent DSP enabling 400ZR as well as extended reach 100/200/300/400G ZR+ modes

Integrated industry standard firmware management interface that enables full performance monitoring previously only available in DCI or transport systems directly from the optical module

COLORZ II represents a massive increase in switch rack capacity, while reducing the power consumption by as much as 80%. COLORZ II delivers up to 14.4T of capacity per rack unit (RU), compared to 2.4T or 3.6T per RU on competing solutions, representing a 4-6 x increase in throughput per chassis. Even emerging competing solutions with higher capacity per lambda are less than 50% capacity per 1RU line card. This drastically improved density on COLORZ II is achieved via new levels of Silicon Photonics integration as well as dramatically decreased power consumption on all elements of the coherent transceiver.COLORZ II enables cloud end users to dramatically lower the cost of scaling out their cloud data centers around the globe. As cloud service providers continue to scale for rapidly increasing bandwidth demands with lower latency for their customers, the trend towards distributed regional data center architectures accelerates. Compared to traditional massive data centers residing in single campus facilities, a more distributed architecture within each metro region provides several advantages including higher resilience and availability for end users.400ZR is an interoperable standard with broad industry support. Motivated by the need to lower the cost and power consumption of DCI, leading cloud operators, OEMs, module, and chip vendors have joined the Optical Interworking Forum (OIF) in the development of an industry standard for 400ZR. COLORZ II is the first publicly announced product designed specifically for this application. Customers that deploy COLORZ II will have the assurance that they will be supported by a multi-vendor industry wide ecosystem and not get locked into proprietary single vendor solutions.
