Hands-on with Intel Co-Packaged Optics and Silicon Photonics Switch – ServeTheHomeVideo

We get some hands-on time in the Intel lab with their new switch. Based on the recently acquired Intel Barefoot Tofino 2 switch ASIC, we see the world’s first (publicly shown like this) working set of switches using both silicon photonics as well as co-packaged optics. We also explain why pluggable optics will be going away in future of switches as they will consume too much power in the 51.2Tbps generation of switches.
