Acacia Debuts 800ZR and 800ZR+ with Interoperable PCS

Stand B133

12th June 2024

Acacia recently announced a new portfolio of silicon-based 800G coherent pluggables that have been designed to provide double the connectivity speed from 400G to 800G to support DCI upgrades, taking advantage of next-generation routers with 800G I/O port speeds. Acacia’s 800G ZR+ modules are designed to support the recently released OpenROADM specifications that include interoperable PCS transmission capability. The 131Gbaud PCS provides additional OSNR margin at 800G for longer reach suitable for regional DCI applications, linking multiple fiber spans and in-line amplification between data centers. Acacia 800G ZR+ pluggables support QSFP-DD and OSFP form factors with >1dBm transmit output power.
