Technology > World’s First Terabit Optical Network Under Development

Seven leading Israeli telecom companies (ECI Telecom, Finisar Corporation Israeli subsidiary, Orckit-Corrigent, Elisra-Elbit, MultiPhy, Optiway, Civcom) and five Israeli universities (the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Ben-Gurion University, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Bar-Ilan University, and Tel-Aviv University) have formed the Tera Santa Consortium. The new organization will coordinate efforts to develop the world’s first Terabit Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)-based optical network.

Research topics will include:

* Novel DSP architectures and algorithmic design
* Cost-effective and compact analog and optical components design
* Design of photonic integrated circuits as component-level platforms for the sub-system layer
* High-speed design using high order Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) constellations
* Overcoming optical impairments over long distances
* Maximizing system spectral efficiency
