Photonic integration will be a disruptive technology that will simplify network design and operation and reduce network operators’ capital and operating expenses.
Photonic and electronic integration have squeezed more performance into a smaller area and at lower power consumption, making coherent devices more cost-effective.
Full photonic integration like the one used by @EFFECTPhotonics helps even further to bring the performance and functions of big, expensive line card systems into a more affordable and sustainable pluggable form factor.
About EFFECT Photonics
EFFECT Photonics delivers highly integrated optical communications products based on its Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical System-on-Chip technology. The key enabling technology for DWDM systems is full monolithic integration of all photonic components within a single chip and being able to produce these in volume with high yield at low cost. With this capability, EFFECT Photonics is addressing the need for low cost DWDM solutions driven by the soaring demand for high bandwidth connections between datacentres and back from mobile cell towers. EFFECT Photonics is headquartered in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, with additional R&D and manufacturing in South West UK, and a facility opening soon in the US.
