“Intra-Data-Center traffic is growing at a rate that outpaces anything seen outside of the data centers and is expected to triple in the next five years. This growth in traffic is driving global energy consumption, for power and cooling, that is simply not sustainable at the current trajectory. At Ranovus, we’re dedicated to developing energy and space efficient technologies to address this critically important challenge – starting with our Odin™ optical engine platform,” said John Martinho, SVP R&D at Ranovus. “We’re proud to have brought together a Tier 1 ecosystem of partners and industry veterans to make these innovations possible.”
