Photonics Technologies for Datacom: Complement or Compete?
31 January 2024 • 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM PST | Moscone Center, Expo Stage, Hall DE (Exhibit Level) 
Network traffic is forecast to grow exponentially in coming years and generative AI led by technologies such as Open AI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard has unleashed a new wave in demand for optical connections. Rapid network bandwidth expansion is also driving photonics technologies developments. Optical transceivers deployed within intra-DC architecture or AOCs for InfiniBand networks can adopt various photonic devices such as VCSELs, DMLs, EMLs, CWLs for silicon photonics (sipho) and DFB-MZ depending on transmission distance and customer requirements. Moreover, SiPho-based in-package optical I/O for chip-to-chip are expected to reach the market soon. Which photonics platform has the potential to be the most preferable in five years? Is there a clear winner? Trends in players’ strategies, future technologies, roadmaps, and market forecasts in optical communication industry will be presented at this event.
