SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Open XR Forum announced today that Innolight Technology (Suzhou) Ltd., DZS, and LightRiver have joined the industry initiative to advance the deployment of software-configurable point-to-point and point-to-multipoint coherent optical networks utilizing industry-defined XR optics pluggable transceiver technology.

The new members bring essential expertise to the Open XR ecosystem and underscore the growing interest in using XR optics pluggable transceiver technology to enable software-defined optical transport networks. Their contributions and participation in the Forum will drive multi-vendor, interoperable solutions to enable high-bandwidth, software-configurable coherent optics from the core to the edge of the network.

"We're happy to join Open XR Forum," said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer at Innolight. "Our collaboration with Forum members will expand Innolight's coherent product line to point-to-multipoint applications. It will save our customers CAPEX and make network deployments more flexible."

"LightRiver is delighted to partner in this important technology initiative," added Mike Jonas, President, Global Customer Operations at LightRiver. "XR technology changes the network economics for many operators, and netFLEX automation will help ensure technical versatility and operational simplicity."

"The technology being advanced by Open XR Forum creates many interesting possibilities for the access network, where we are seeing major waves of demand and innovation to support optical broadband and 5G deployments," said Andrew Bender, Chief Technology Officer at DZS. "We look forward to working closely with member companies participating in the Open XR Forum to help progress software-driven coherent optical technology at the network edge."

Open XR Forum is an MSA consortium bringing together network operators, equipment vendors, and component suppliers committed to building the foundation for a new generation of coherent optical solutions that will cost-effectively meet the demand for greater network scalability and flexibility. XR optics is the industry's first coherent optical solution to solve the access and aggregation challenges faced by network operators caused by the misalignment between network traffic patterns and the technology used to transport that traffic.
