POET and MultiLane partner on transceivers


The companies intend to leverage MultiLane’s test solutions to shorten design cycles for next-generation 800G, 1.6T and 3.2T pluggable transceivers using POET’s optical engines, accelerating their time to market

POET Technologies, the designer and developer of the POET Optical Interposer and PICs for datacentre, telecommunication and AI markets has announced a collaboration with MultiLane, a provider of high-speed IO and datacentre interconnect test solutions, to develop next-generation, performance-optimised pluggable 800G, 1.6T and higher speed transceivers using POET’s newly designed transmit and receive optical engines. The two companies will focus on jointly developing pluggable transceivers that will reduce cost and improve power efficiency over existing solutions, and address the increasing need for more scalable hardware components for AI and cloud datacentre markets.

“Our intent with this collaboration is to design cost-optimised 800G modules that offer superior performance with both the DSP integrated version as well as Linear Pluggable Optics (LPO) variants,” said Raju Kankipati, POET’s SVP of Product Management. “We also want to kick start our designs for 1.6T and 3.2T pluggable transceivers for the most advanced datacentre and AI network operators. We have to plan and develop ahead of market demand and be ready when customers are ready to test these higher speeds. The collaboration with MultiLane will significantly shorten the design cycle time for POET’s technology and will enable us to bring this value to our global customers much more quickly.”

Fadi Daou, founder and CEO of MultiLane, said: “We are excited to collaborate with POET, offering our services in product development, testing automation, and contract manufacturing to accelerate the product development and launch. MultiLane specialises in high throughput testing that enables shorter design cycles and a faster time to market; driving industry innovation and maintaining a healthy networking ecosystem.”

According to POET, initial samples of pluggable transceiver modules from this collaboration are expected to be available in late 2024.
