Calient debuts high-density photonic switch for data centres

Calient Technologies has revamped its all-optical switch. The new switch has a smaller form factor, lower power consumption, and other features that the company claims makes it the first high-density photonic switch targeting data centre applications. Called the S320, the 320-port switch can be used to create a flexible, scalable network fabric connecting top-of-rack switches with core routers.

One of the big attractions for using all-optical switches in the data centre is that they’re transparent to data rate. As speeds go from 10 Gbps to 40 Gbps and then 100 Gbps, there’s no need to upgrade the switch. “We’re basically good to 100G and beyond,” said Daniel Tardent, director of marketing at Calient.
