Silicon photonics market to boom for 100G then 400G, research shows

Silicon photonics market

“Si photonics growth is now confirmed”, announces Dr. Eric Mounier from Yole Développement (Yole). “Therefore, the development of Si photonics technologies is especially driven by the intra & inter data center applications. Silicon photonics is today one of the most valuable answers to high data rate/low cost for distances beyond VCSEL’s reach.”
The market research and strategy consulting company, Yole investigates the Si photonics sector for years now and was already announcing its take-off in 2017. This year, the trend is confirmed, strongly supported by the needs of data management and performances. Continue reading “Silicon photonics market to boom for 100G then 400G, research shows”

Photonic integration in the future access market – Interview with Professor John Marsh, University of Glasgow

public market

“With a bit of luck and cooperation of the major stakeholders in the public market, we will have in about two years time faster internet connections”, according to professor John Marsh. But the far east will be the first to enjoy this advantage, as they have invested heavily in fibre optic systems over the past decade rather than relying on old copper networks like Europe and North America. On top of that it is of immense importance that the leading access network companies in the world agree on standards that include a robust roadmap for the next 15 years.
