400G form-factors: QSFP56-DD vs. OSFP vs. CFP8

QSFP-DD, OSFP, and CFP8: Which is the Best for 400G?

There are three criteria for a successful form-factor: small size, low power consumption, and interoperability between all systems vendors. As we all know, the SFP/SFP+ and QSFP+/QSFP28 are successful form-factors for 1G/10G and 40G/100G networks. In fact, for 100G networks, there are 4 different form-factors: CFP, CFP2, CFP4, and QSFP28. 100G The transmission departments in telecommunication networks need a pluggable…
