The magic number

With advances in silicon technology gathering pace, Keely Portway discovers three main ways they are being leveraged to enable the evolution of coherent optical engines

Pluggables, Embeddeds, and the Three Vectors of Coherent Evolution

This article is brought to you by: 

Silicon technology enhancements are enabling the evolution of coherent optical engines along three vectors. The first vector maximizes performance by leveraging the most advanced optical features, the second minimizes space and power, and a third integrates systems-level functions that were previously located in the shelf or card. 

Hand-in-hand

How will the next generation of optical networks provide the capacity to support unwavering increases in traffic, and does one solution really ‘fit all’? Keely Portway finds out

 

100GBaud+ Silicon Photonics Solutions Drive Optical Network Evolution

This paper describes how silicon photonic (SiPh) opto-electronic integration and packaging, with its improved RF performance, is designed to enable next-generation coherent transmission beyond 100Gbaud and provide network operators with the ability to avoid “half-step” capacity upgrades and allow them the full step upgrades they need without sacrificing reach or stranding network bandwidth when migrating from current-generation solutions.
