In recent times, optical companies have been moving into Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and selling direct to enterprises using dark fiber as well as offering DCI services via infrastructure suppliers.

In this Packet Pushers podcast, ECI's Scott Wilkinson and Cignal AI's Andrew Schmitt discuss the basics of silicon photonics and how it impacts optical networking, particularly for DCI. We also examine the open optical movement being driven by the Facebook-backed Telecom Infrastructure Project.
