Paper Abstract

Optical transceivers are the dominating technology for the optical front end of short and medium reach optical communication systems. They are diverse, ranging from low cost and high volume applications to extreme performance and relatively low volume products. Different technical solutions for the optical components are used and this paper gives an overview of enabling technologies. Furthermore the challenges (density, power consumption, cost, reach, increased performance) that optical transceivers face today and which technologies may be used to solve these challenges in the future are discussed.
