OIF completes implementation agreement interoperability specs for CFP2-DCO and HB-CDM modules

Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) — the global industry forum accelerating market adoption of advanced interoperable optical networking solutions — has completed two new implementation agreements (IAs): the CFP2-Digital Coherent Optics Module (CFP2-DCO) and High Bandwidth- Coherent Driver Modulator (HB-CDM) IAs.

“As a member-driven organization, OIF’s work is based on our members’ needs,” says Karl Gass, OIF, PLL Working Group – Optical vice chair. “The CFP2-DCO IA is in direct response to feedback from a network operator that needed an IA to fill an interoperability gap in their network. The HB-CDM IA addresses a performance need by creating a component that can be used for much higher-performance links.”


The IA for CFP2-DCO defines the additional information needed in order to implement the DCO function in the CFP2 module. The CFP2-DCO module contains all the required functions to perform dual-polarization coherent optical signaling. The module can also provide different bit rates such as 100G/200G/300G/400G and support more modulation formats.


The IA for HB-CDM targets modulation and data-rate-agnostic coherent applications having nominal symbol rates up to 64Gbaud. It defines a small-form-factor electro-optic component that integrates the HB-polarization multiplexed-quadrature (HB-PMQ) modulator plus the RF drive functions for the high-baud-rate and low modem implementation penalty segment of the coherent market. Additionally, the IA identifies and specifies the common features and properties of coherent transmitters to enable them to broadly meet the needs of existing and future coherent systems.
