Description: Most of work on the '400G Class' Standards is complete, and new projects are starting to define the electrical links that will enable the next '800G Class' of optical and electrical standards. The low margins we see today will be even smaller or non-existent in the next generation. Verifying compliance for 400G requires careful attention to test setup and execution, and will likely require even more discipline moving forward. This session will cover practical techniques to minimize some of the problem areas users are experiencing today in validating compliance in 400G links, and what challenges we may see as the 800G class Standards begins to take shape.
