Hyperscale data center applications of optoelectronics
Author(s): Katharine Schmidtke

Paper Abstract

From subsea fiber cables to short-reach switch interconnects, optoelectronics is a key technology for hyperscale data center networks. As performance requirements increase, photonics moves deeper into the network replacing copper for shorter distances. The next move for photonics is to distances of less than 3m for in-rack applications. This talk will describe how the scale of data-bandwidth growth has challenged what is possible with traditional networks and where the next opportunities for innovation lie.
