Photonics for Disaggregated Data Centers
With increasingly challenging demands being placed on data centers, to perform many complex computational or network operations in addition to serving end users, there is growing pressure to find innovative low cost, efficient architectures. One approach is to move away from a host or servers based architecture and instead organize the various computing, memory, storage, and networking resources for maximum efficiency. This often means pooling common resources into central locations or realizing the data center as a supercomputer model. This approach can also be used to maximize application efficiency by taking advantage of the modularity of dis‐aggregation and choosing and / or updating resources that best meet the specific requirement.

Co-located with OSA's Advanced Photonics Congress, the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) will host Photonic Integration for Advanced Modulation Format Transmission at 100Gb/s and Beyond– Status of the Industry and Challenges Ahead, a one-day Workshop sponsored by Infinera Corporation.
Program Description: Ever growing internet traffic calls for more bandwidth at higher interface density, and the telecom industry responded by migrating from a simple OOK to advanced modulation format transmission. First commercial systems, e.g. coherent DP-QPSK modulation systems operating at 100Gb/s per wavelength, have been deployed, while many new developments are under way. They target different applications and vary by technology platform but all have one feature in common: optical components based on photonic integration.
It is becoming increasingly evident that the photonic integration, in some shape and form, is the key to further advancement of such systems. The objective of this workshop is to provide a snapshot of the photonic integration techniques and platforms used for advanced modulation format transmission today and to discuss challenges on a way forward.
The Photonic Integration Workshop is sponsored by OIDA Member:
