100GBaud+ Silicon Photonics Solutions Drive Optical Network Evolution

This article is brought to you by: 

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.

Silicon photonics to capture almost $4 billion of optical transceivers market by 2025

Silicon photonics is on the verge of experiencing dramatic uptake in optical transceivers, market research firm Yole Développement has reported, with the technology set to capture 35 per cent – almost $4 billion – of the optical transceiver market by 2025, up from just a few per cent in 2016.

The transceivers are expected to be used mostly for intra-data centre communication, according to Yole, with the strongest demand being for 400G (400 Gigabits per second), and 200G acting as an intermediate step between 100G and 400G.
