About Us

What we do

Lumenisity® Limited was formed in early 2017 as a spin-out from the world-renowned Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton to commercialise breakthroughs in the development of hollowcore optical fibre. We have built a team of industry leaders and experts to realise our goal to be the world’s premier high-performance Hollowcore fibre optic cable solutions provider, offering customers reliable, deployable, low latency and high bandwidth connections that unlock new capabilities in communication networks.

Lumenisity is well funded by a consortium of industrial and private investors. We recently relocated our headquarters to Romsey, UK after a substantial investment was made in developing a state of the art manufacturing and testing facility.

Our vision:

To be the world’s premier high-performance hollowcore fibre optic cable solutions provider offering our customers reliable, deployable, low latency and high bandwidth connections that unlock new capabilities in communication networks.

Our CORE values:


Application in Communication Networks

With more emphasis on the digital economy, autonomy and virtual working than ever before, customers are searching for low latency, high-capacity solutions, which our breakthrough innovative cabling solutions can offer.

Internet traffic is growing at an unprecedented rate, generated largely by Cloud Computing, gaming and PDA’s, meaning we are facing an impending network crunch.

High capacity and low latency data links, both intra and inter data centres will be required in strategic sections of the optical layer. One approach to addressing the challenge brought on by limited space in existing ducts, is the use of DWDM for both intra and inter data centre links, leveraging mature, emerging and future transmission technologies. Our hollowcore fibre-based cabling solutions will offer a real advantage in these applications.
