Due to ever increasing bandwidth demand for services like virtual reality applications, ultra-high definition video, 5G mobile transport and cloud services, the line-rates in optical access systems are continuously pushed higher approaching 100G line-rate. This requires increased complexity in transmission techniques and transceiver systems while maintaining cost-effectiveness as the main objective in these future systems.
Integrated photonics, especially Silicon Photonics, offer lower cost at high volumes than discrete counterparts. So, could photonic integration be the solution to the more complex but still low-cost transceiver technologies needed for next-generation optical access?
