Scaling Optical Interconnects in Datacenter Networks Opportunities and Challenges for WDM

2010 18th IEEE Symposium on High Performance Interconnects, IEEE, pp. 113-116


We review the growing need for optical interconnect bandwidth in datacenter networks, and the opportunities and challenges for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) to sustain the “last 2km” bandwidth growth inside datacenter networks.
