Watch for silicon photonics on the line side

Thu Oct 23 15:04:00 CDT 2014
Most of the hullabaloo around silicon photonics has centered on its application to data center networks. But presentations and announcements at last month’s ECOC in Cannes, France, indicate the technology will play on the line side as well. For example, Acacia Communications used the show to further publicize its use of sili...
