Lumenisity is developing advanced cable solutions to address the need for massive bandwidth increases in high capacity communications systems. Formed in 2016 to commercialise the world class R&D in optical fibre technologies from the University of Southampton, the company is well funded by a consortium of industrial and private investors and is currently building an extensive team and infrastructure.
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.
TECHNOLOGY & APPLICATIONS
Lumenisity advanced structured fibre technology offers:
- Widened Spectral Window => more Channels
- Increased Spectral Efficiency => reduced fibre nonlinearity, improved power handling and reduced fibre losses
- Spatial Domain multiplexing through multiple mode or multiple core fibres
