Optical Data Center Interconnect Overview Training


Optical Data Center Interconnect (ODCI) is the technology that connects two or more physical data centers together over short, medium or long distances using DWDM optical connectivity. It connects routers and servers to each other or to multi-tenant data centers, so end users and data can connect to storage and compute resources, cloud applications and cloud services. ODCI can be built from the optical layer, with DWDM technology.

In this video training, we explain what Optical Data Center Interconnect (ODCI) is; the drivers behind the technology; how it’s implemented; and what ODCI capabilities we have in the WWT Advanced Technology Center (ATC). We also provide a brief overview of the professional services we offer around ODCI, including implementation and customized training.
