How Coherent is powering innovation in artificial intelligence and machine learning for next-generation datacenters. Blog post from Coherent.
In the world of transceivers, change is the only constant — and we are in the early days of a step- change thanks to advances in artificial intelligence. Finisar (now Coherent) was a pioneer in pluggable transceivers so much so that the name Finisar became almost synonymous with transceivers.
From telecom networks to enterprise datacenters to web 2.0 hyperscalers, much has changed over the past two decades because of evolutionary and revolutionary changes in the key market drivers.
Today, we’re seeing another major market transition, namely the dramatic growth in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). These applications will define the next chapter in the optical transceiver story – a chapter we are already writing here at Coherent.
It’s an important story because transceivers are a critical if invisible part of the modern world we live in. Whether we realize it or not, most of us use the fiber optic network and transceivers on a daily basis.
