Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and Facebook Inc. (FB) unveiled Thursday the Co-Packaged Optics Collaboration.

The collaboration will focus on specifications for packaged integration of network-switching ASICs and optics.

The CPO Collaboration, a project of the Joint Development Foundation, will evaluate and adopt open, technical solutions submitted by switch and optical suppliers.

"The Co-Packaged Optics Collaboration will provide a customer-driven, system-level view of requirements for co-packaged optics," said Katharine Schmidtke, director of technology sourcing for Facebook, who is responsible for the company's optical technology strategy. "By sharing the specifications, we aim to develop a diverse and innovative supplier ecosystem."
