Adtran showcases world-first coherent 100ZR QSFP28 demo at OFC
Adtran®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), the leading provider of next-generation open and disaggregated networking solutions, today announced the successful demonstration of its Coherent 100ZR technology at OFC, showcasing the industry’s first live display of a 100ZR QSFP28 pluggable operating over a DWDM metro ring. The demo shows how operators can benefit from efficient and cost-effective deployment of coherent 100Gbit/s services with minimal power consumption and zero footprint increase. The trial uses the multi-vendor OFCnet network setup with equipment at the Adtran booth as well as the Coherent Corp. and OFCnet booths.
“This demo is a significant milestone for network operators looking to expand their business capabilities. It highlights how our Coherent 100ZR can be easily and affordably integrated into a metro aggregation network, eliminating the need for costly infrastructure changes,” said Saeid Aramideh, VP of business development at Optical Engines, Adtran. “This showcase reveals a valuable solution for operators seeking to support higher data rates at the network edge and highlights the potential for widespread adoption of 100Gbit/s coherent technology. We can’t wait to bring these benefits to our customers.”
Adtran’s Coherent 100ZR is purpose-built for the optical network edge. With its QSFP28 form factor and power specification, it enables easy and cost-effective upgrades to 100Gbit/s data rates by plugging directly into existing head-ends, switches and routers. It offers a wide range of deployment options, from local exchanges and central offices to harsh outdoor conditions such as street cabinets. These benefits are achieved thanks to the transceiver‘s unique features, including a cost-, space- and power-optimized DSP specifically engineered for 100ZR. Co-developed by Adtran and Coherent Corp., this all-new DSP is unique to the marketplace. Adtran is also developing low-power silicon photonics integrated circuits that will enable even faster and more energy-efficient solutions across a wide range of applications.
“The technology we’re showcasing here will be a game-changer for service providers. It offers the ability to easily deploy coherent 100Gbit/s connectivity with compact footprint and lowest power consumption. By bringing coherent technology to the optical edge, we’re providing operators with a cost-efficient solution to upgrade edge aggregation networks to 100Gbit/s,” commented Ross Saunders, GM of Optical Engines, Adtran. “Our Coherent 100ZR will also boost sustainability by lowering our customers’ carbon footprint. What’s more, it offers a way to deliver an improved experience for end-users by supporting higher data rates and improved service reliability.”

New Post Hoc Analysis from MAVORIC Trial Sheds Light on the Burden of Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma on Health-Related Quality of Life11.12.2023 15:00:00 CET | Press release
Kyowa Kirin International (KKI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyowa Kirin Co. Ltd, today announced health-related quality of life (HRQL) findings from a post hoc analysis of the MAVORIC trial in patients with mycosis fungoides (MF) or Sézary syndrome (SS), two subtypes of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Researchers analysed baseline data collected prior to initiation of study treatment and found the symptoms of advanced MF/SS affected HRQL across all domains, with poorer HRQL associated with being younger in age, female, having moderate or severe itching, and impaired function as measured by the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS). “CTCL is a chronic, life-long condition. Understanding how symptoms impact an individual physically, emotionally as well as in their daily life is critical,” said Susan Thornton, Chief Executive Officer, Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation and one of the study authors. “The data provide new insights into the burdens of living with CTC
