400G Interconnects for Data Centres and High-Performance Computing – What is Next?

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, different aspects of scaling interconnect systems beyond 400 Gbit/s towards 1 Tbit/s capacity are examined and discussed. Role playing devil’s advocate for different approaches, ultimately we concede on three points: we will need to provide more capacity soon, any roadmap in terms of modulation format is blurry right now, and optics is plateauing in terms of performance while electronics keep going.
