Inter-data center interconnect is the connection between two data centers or two buildings within a large data center campus. These inter-data center interconnects are typically between 10km to 80km. Industry people refer to data center interconnect as DCI.
Data center interconnect refers to the networking of two or more different data centers to achieve business or IT objectives. This interconnectivity between separate data centers enables them to work together, share resources and/or pass workloads between one another.
A data center interconnect is mainly accomplished using networking tools and techniques along with supported software and data center management processes.
Products that were only used within the data center are gaining reach, and they’re running up against coherent solutions that were formerly only used for long distances. Due to the increasing bandwidth and decreasing cost, coherent is being pulled closer into the data center.
SINTAI 1.6T transponder is an OTN transmission platform customized for Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications. it represents a best-in-class alternative to Compact DCI systems by providing not just the capacity required to meet interconnection needs but also the flexibility, manageability, ease of use and cost-efficiency that make it ideal for data center interconnection. It's up to eight single wavelength 200G channels, with 8x 200G CFP2 coherent optics uplinks on the line side, and 16x 100G QSFP28 on the client side.
SINTAI 1.6T transponder is widely applicable to DCI scenarios for industries and enterprises with high digitalization, including IXPs, finance, large enterprises and etc.It also enables easy scaling of existing network capacity without replacing exiting OTN/DWDM infrastructure.
