User access networks

Overcome the latency, capacity and energy bottlenecks in network nodes and network interconnects by using optical devices (switches and interconnects). We cover various levels of technology research from chip design and chip packaging towards networks architectures and control and management aspects.

The different innovative devices are deployed for solving challenges in areas such as Data Center Networks and metro and wide-area networks. Device work is complemented with design/fabrication and evaluation of HW and SW needed for device control. Software defined networks and Field Programmable Gate arrays are used to insure minimal end to end latency for data packets and scalable solutions
