NeoPhotonics Corporation and Inphi Corporation have started shipping a new High Dynamic Range-Integrated Coherent Receiver (HD-ICR) in production volume to their customers. The HD-ICR couples the high dynamic range, low noise, and high input current handling capabilities of the Inphi IN3250TA TIA with the high sensitivity of the NeoPhotonics photodiodes and is designed to deliver the performance necessary for next generation 100G ' colourless' coherent transmission systems.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
