EFFECT Photonics joins the Telecom Infra Project and its Open Optical & Packet Transport Project Group

EINDHOVEN – The Netherlands – December 10, 2020 – EFFECT Photonics has joined the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), a global community of companies and organizations that are driving infrastructure solutions to advance global connectivity.

TIP was founded in 2016 and consists of a diverse range of companies including service providers, technology partners, systems integrators and other connectivity stakeholders. TIP’s members work together to develop, test and deploy open, disaggregated, and standards-based solutions providing the high-quality connectivity the world needs now and in the future.

EFFECT Photonics is a member of TIP’s Open Optical & Packet Transport Project Group, which is working on defining open technologies, architectures and interfaces used in Optical and IP Networking. The group is involved in developing different parts of the Transport network architecture including optical transponders, line systems, IP access devices, open API’s and network simulation and planning tools.

EFFECT Photonics’ CCO Harald Graber explains: “The networking industry is evolving at a constantly growing pace while now, more than ever before, high bandwidth access for everybody is needed. This is achievable only through open collaboration. TIP is addressing these questions and shares so many EFFECT Photonics’ values that we are more than excited to join and contribute to TIP’s vision. Our unique optical SoC technology and packaging competence can contribute to achieving the TIP community’s goals. Furthermore, our NarroWave technology and optimized transceivers for the 5G-XHaul environment can support TIP’s OpenRAN initiative. We are excited to see what our end customers are able to do with the products we have developed.”

EFFECT Photonics’ product portfolio includes the currently shipped 10Gbps 40km DWDM Narrow Tunable SFP+ module which has industrial temperature range and low power consumption compared to competing designs. It is also available with the optional NarroWave functionality with auto-tune and remote digital diagnostics which make these devices an attractive choice for network operators looking to add bandwidth without adding physical fibre while saving on deployment and installation costs by allowing remote monitoring and control.

About the Telecom Infra Project

The Telecom Infra Project (TIP) is a global community of companies and organizations that are driving infrastructure solutions to advance global connectivity. Half of the world’s population is still not connected to the internet, and for those who are, connectivity is often insufficient. This limits access to the multitude of consumer and commercial benefits provided by the internet, thereby impacting GDP growth globally. However, a lack of flexibility in the current solutions – exacerbated by a limited choice in technology providers – makes it challenging for operators to efficiently build and upgrade networks. Founded in 2016, TIP is a community of diverse members that includes hundreds of companies – from service providers and technology partners, to systems integrators and other connectivity stakeholders. We are working together to develop, test and deploy open, disaggregated, and standards-based solutions that deliver the high- quality connectivity that the world needs – now and in the decades to come.
