Cisco Optics Podcast Episode 20. How to Make Coherent Optics Small and Pluggable, with Tom Williams


Coherent optics have been the go-to solution for high-end optical transport systems for years. Eventually these optics were modularized and with recent advances in DSP design and optics manufacturing, this technology is now available in small form factor pluggable modules. Cisco recognized the importance of this technology and acquired the industry’s leader in this space, Acacia Communications in March of 2021. In Episode 20, we start a new conversation with Tom Williams, Director of Technical Marketing, who joined Cisco via the Acacia acquisition. We begin our conversation with Tom’s background and the types of problems they solved at Acacia.

Tune in to the latest episode of the Cisco Optics Podcast to hear about the latest trends and technical topics in the optics industry from experts at Cisco and the broader industry.
