Improving Data Center Network Locality w/ Co-packaged Optics

View publication


Co-packaged optics can enable switches with unprecedented speeds of 51.2 Tb/s and beyond. This translates to networks with 4x higher bisection bandwidth, >40% fewer switches, and substantially improved network locality, i.e., large-scale applications can be placed under up to 50% fewer 1st -level switches.
