The platform for the 400G era and beyond10. 05. 2021 Monday / By: Robert Denes / Industrial / Exact time: BST / Print this page
Continuous advances in optical and silicon technology have allowed network operators to keep pace with the explosion in demand for video and mobile bandwidth over the past decade. However, traditional technologies are approaching the basic boundaries of transmission capacity and processing power.
Silicon photonics is the revolutionary technology that will enable the significant improvements in performance, density and economy needed to make the 400G ubiquitous and make next-generation optical communication networks a reality.
The third generation of silicon photonics solutions includes a portfolio of coherent silicon transmitter and receiver (CSTAR) optical motors for 100G to 400G coherent applications that can be designed for both pluggable and onboard forms. These optical motors are extremely compact in shape, low power consumption and deliver unprecedented performance.
