Lumenisity was formed in 2016 to commercialise the world class R&D in optical fibre technologies from the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), at the University of Southampton. Our mission is to develop advanced cable solutions that address the “Bandwidth Crunch” in high capacity communications systems. Our structured fibre solutions are tailored for high performance datacom and telecom applications in both data centres and public networks.
With the forecasted internet traffic to be over 2.3 Zeta bytes1 in 2020, generated largely by Cloud Computing, gaming and PDA’s, we are facing an impending Bandwidth Crunch. Over 75% of all IP traffic is expected to stay within the data centre and high capacity data links both intra and inter data centres will be required. With limited space in existing micro ducts, the pressure is on to find efficient solutions to satisfy the bandwidth requirements and increased network performance. Our structured fibres will offer a real advantage in these applications.
The company is well funded by a consortium of industrial and private investors and is building a world class team and infrastructure.

The ORC is one of the world’s leading institutes for photonics research, based at the University of Southampton.
Formed in 1989 as an Interdisciplinary Research Centre, the ORC merges groups from Electronics and Computer Science, and Physics and Astronomy at the University. Led by some of the leading figures in the field of photonics, the ORC has contributed significantly to the remarkable growth of the photonics industry, including the optical telecommunication technology that underpins the internet, as well as many solutions in medicine, biosciences sensing, security and manufacturing.
The ORC fosters a strong culture of innovation, forging close industry links, which have resulted in a raft of spin-out companies including Lumenisity. The ORC has excellent relationships with business and industry both in the UK and internationally, and provides support through joint research projects, consultancy, commercialisation of research, knowledge transfer and use of their facilities.
