We offer highly integrated optical communications products based on our Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical System-on-Chip technology
DWDM has made optical telecommunications even better by dramatically increasing bandwidth over existing fibre networks
DWDM allows data from various signals to be separated and encoded on different wavelengths and put together in a single optical fibre. At the receiving end, the wavelengths are separated out again and reconverted into the original digital signals. This then allows DWDM to send different data streams simultaneously over a single optical fibre without requiring new cables to be laid.
It is ‘dense’ reflecting the large number of signals that can be packed in a single fibre. Furthermore, because DWDM connections can be amplified, they can transmit data across very long distances. Tunable DWDM transceivers can thus ensure more efficient, cost-effective optical solutions.
The key enablers 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 data centers and back from mobile cell towers.
