Currently, mainstream 400G optical modules have been used in various network scenarios, such as DC networking, metro integrated bearer networks, and large-capacity and long-haul transmission networks. With over 10 years of investment and R&D, HiSilicon Optoelectronics has become the provider of end-to-end 400G optical module solutions that are fundamental for building ultra-broadband pipelines to carry the heavy traffic flows in the ICT industry.
