Our ADVA journey began with mainframe connectivity. It was more than 25 years ago when we supplied IBM mainframe environments with our first product, the OCM-4, and we’ve been at the forefront of transport innovation in this area ever since. Our technology has led the industry, achieving GDPS® qualification for successive generations of coupling links, Ethernet and Fibre Channel transport ahead of anyone else ...

Integrating a laser onto a silicon electro-photonic integrated chip is the current holy grail in the optical transceiver space. When realized, these advanced semiconductors will help the DCI networking industry tackle critical issues around cost-efficiency, power consumption, and thermal management for optical transceivers. But the addition of a laser to silicon chips that already feature monolithic integration of electronics and photonics presents several challenges. That’s why a multi-disciplinary team of engineers from across the supply chain are combining skills and resources under the banner of the Photonic Embedding of Active Region Laser Chips in Silicon (PEARLS) project ...

It’s been a busy few months for our FSP 3000 TeraFlex™. Following a series of 600Gbit/s trials showing how the solution addresses the growing bandwidth needs of metro DCI networks, TeraFlex succeeded in a unique ultra-long-haul demo. 300Gbit/s of data was transported over a 6,800km fiber link representative of a cost-optimized submarine cable ...
