Researchers develop world’s top-class 400-Gbps optical engine

Researchers in South Korea have developed ultra-fast transmitting/receiving optical engine that can provide stable and improved data transfer speed for data centers. The new technology sends eight times as much data as conventional methods in each linecard/server. It is expected to contribute to solving data traffic congestion in data centers where the demand for fast data speed has increased due to high-definition video content and services using artificial intelligence and cloud computing.

High-Speed Fiber Cable Assemblies for the 5G Era

Active optical cables are key components in the high-speed systems needed to handle the exponential increase in data traffic that will come with 5G.  According to the figure being passed around at DesignCon 2020, only 15% of the 5G infrastructure has been installed so far. That means a tremendous number of transmitters, small cells, antennas, data centers, and devices will be needed — and millions of miles of cable, connecting continents, data centers, service providers, and users.
