Inphi’s COLORZ enables the most cost effective 100G DWDM solution for
data center customers to connect their data centers within a metro area.
Using advanced PAM4 and highly integrated Silicon photonics, COLORZ is
available in the industry standard form factor QSFP28 and can be plugged
directly into an open slot of a switch or router without the need for a
separate transport box.

“Having native COLORZ support available on the IP Infusion OcNOS
operating system, will allow customers to deploy cost effective 100G
DWDM connectivity using white box platforms and meet their desire for
building low cost flexible disaggregated optical network
infrastructure,” said Dr. Loi Nguyen, founder, senior vice president,
Optical Interconnect at Inphi. “Customers can now de-couple hardware and
software in their DWDM network.”

“The qualification of Inphi’s COLORZ will extend the acceptance of white
box solutions based OcNOS to a greater customer base allowing
multiplexing of high-speed data stream over single fiber and enabling
easy scaling of network capacity for DCI,” said Atsushi Ogata, CEO and
President of IP Infusion. “Inphi will continue to be a vital partner for
us as we continue to expand the NOS functions and support for current
and future Inphi and IP Infusion white box solution customers.”

OcNOS is the industry’s first full-featured modular extensible network
OS for white box open networking solutions offering advanced
capabilities such as extensive switching and routing protocol support
ranging from Layer2, Layer 3 to Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS),
and APIs/protocols for software defined networking (SDN). OcNOS features
hybrid, centralized or distributed network support; scalable, modular
high-performance network; and a robust data plane built on merchant

Leveraging Inphi’s leadership in advanced silicon photonics and PAM4
Digital Signal Processing (DSP), COLORZ fits in a QSFP28 hot pluggable
form factor and delivers up to 4Tb/s of bandwidth over a single fiber.
This hot-swappable device plugs into any QSFP28 100G Ethernet port of
any standard switch or router enabling a paradigm shift to IPoDWDM. For
