21st OIDA Annual Forum
OIDA's Annual Forum brings key stakeholders together in Washington, D.C. to maximize discussion between industry, government, and academic decision-makers.
04 November - 04 November 2014
The Optical Society (OSA) Headquarters, Washington,
OIDA Workshop on State of the Art Integrated Photonics
This workshop continues a series of OIDA workshops that reviews the state of the art in photonic integration in optical communications. It aims to address several
questions: How does photonic integration address the emerging business needs of optical communications? What is the experience of deployment? What are the
novel integration concepts and what are the key challenges in productization? Which forms of integration match specific applications within
communications? What are some of the new and noteworthy products being commercialized today? The workshop will examine the commercialization of
components and subsystems and their applications, as opposed to purely research achievements in photonic integration. The workshop will discuss applications
across telecom and data center networks.
05 November - 05 November 2014
The Optical Society (OSA) Headquarters, Washington, DC,
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.
