AI Cloud Drives Optical Interconnection Bandwidth

These days, cloud data centers are busy building their artificial intelligence (AI)-based computing platform for the vast majority of application software developers, who do not necessarily have to be machine learning (ML) specialists or data scientists, to develop various applications for multiple …

Calculating QAM Bandwidth Gains

This article was written by John Houghton and proofread for accuracy by Ferris Lipscomb, Ph.D, Solid State Physics, NeoPhotonics. Let’s say you’re not the technical type and someone in a meeting asks, “If we go from 16 QAM to 64 QAM, how much more bandwidth will we get?” (QAM means Quadrature Amplit…

Square Peg in a Round Hole…or… Why Interoperability Matters

Consumers love choices; different colors, shapes, and flavors.  But when it comes to our technology, nothing is more frustrating than a drawer full of abandoned adaptors, cables and dongles.  Even a simple standard such as USB has evolved into many variations over the years; and of course, this does…

Importance of Power Efficiency in DCOs

Green is everywhere, from cars to buildings and even in our communications networks. As the data rates grow from 4G to 5G, every layer of the network is forced to upgrade to higher data rates and denser interconnectivity. And at the same time, available power cannot scale proportionately, forcing po…

The Impact of Laser Linewidth and 1/f Frequency Noise on Coherent Optical Systems

Modern coherent optical transmission systems rely on detecting both the multiple amplitudes and phases of a transmitted signal, hence the phase noise of a transmitter laser and a receiver laser (which serves as a local oscillator) plays a critical role in determining the system performance. Laser ph…

Advanced Modulation Formats

Coherent fiber optic transmission systems, such as those supported by NeoPhotonics products, use higher order modulation (HOM) formats to transmit more information in a given slice of the optical spectrum.  These techniques are similar to those used for years in microwave communications devices, but…
