Innovation in invention: closing the gap between an internet economy and optical technology

ABSTRACT

A radical shift is taking place in the way the worlds networks are being architected for the future which will translate into tremendous pressure points for scale and flexibility in optical technology advances. Step function advances in speed of innovation are needed to not only to meet this basic demand but also to return a level of stability to an industry which has struggled to hold its position in the economic value chain in an internet driven economy.

Transforming networks to enhance customer experience

ABSTRACT

At Orange we operate a large variety of networks from fixed and mobile access networks in around 30 countries to international backbones. We have always been very active in designing and deploying enhanced technologies and solutions to anticipate the needs of our customers. These needs continue to evolve towards higher throughputs and volumes of traffic, enriched services, increased quality of service and improved performance (in terms of security, cost, and energy efficiency). That’s why optical networks are required to evolve to meet future demands. Beyond Gbps fibre access, it will be key to find the right mechanisms to enhance customer experience and quality of service. Those improvements will be based on self-optimising networks, big data analytics, policy mechanisms, etc. to ensure that we deliver and fully master the customized experience we provide to our customers.

Silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits and Lasers

ABSTRACT 

A number of important breakthroughs in the past decade have focused attention on Si as a photonic platform. We review here recent progress in this field, focusing on efforts to make lasers, amplifiers, modulators and photodetectors on or in silicon.  We also describe progress in silicon photonic integrated circuits. The impact active silicon photonic integrated circuits could have on interconnects, telecommunications and on silicon electronics is reviewed.
