Santa Clara, USA – Linear Drive Pluggable Optics (LPO) continues to make waves in the industry since its initial buzz at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC) in March. CIG, a leader in LPO, stole the spotlight at ECOC 2023 in Glasgow, UK, where Dr. Michael Xin, CIG’s Vice President for Marketing, unveiled groundbreaking test data and proposed innovative techniques that move LPO closer to wide-spread adoption. Dr. Xin’s presentation, “Linear Pluggable Optics Modules for Data Center Interconnects,” was described by LightCounting as “the most extensive set of LPO test data to date”  (see LightCounting report “October 2023 ECOC 23: An agenda of serial versus parallel”).
