Enablence announces new DWDM optical chips to improve data centres’ bandwidth


Enablence Technologies, a provider of photonic semiconductors for data centre, telecom, automotive, and industrial automation applications has announced a new series of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical devices. The company says these low-loss, low-power, Gaussian and Flattop optical DWDM devices enable data centres’ interconnectivity to optimise bandwidth and data traffic across much longer distances, making them especially useful for mission-critical networks.

DWDM is a form of wavelength division multiplexing designed to afford organisations more flexibility and cost benefits in solving increased network bandwidth capacity requirements. According to Enablence, the new devices support high channel density within the 1525 to 1565 nm C-Band spectrum, and can transmit large quantities of data through a single fibre, allowing more wavelengths to be packed onto the same fibre.

By densely packing data streams at different wavelengths, Enablence says its new DWDM devices extend signal quality over longer distances and lengthen data rates. Additionally, by using optical amplifiers, the company says its DWDM family of devices also enable the transport of higher amounts of data up to thousands of kilometres. DWDM plays a significant role in the convergence of the metro, wireless, and DCI networks across both telecom and data centre service providers.

"Demand for optical networking solutions is exploding, and data centres in particular are turning to DWDM photonics devices as one of a handful of solutions to meet their immediate and growing need for increased bandwidth and distance," commented Todd Haugen, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Enablence. "Our DWDM roll out follows the release of a new family of CWDM devices both based on proven planar lightwave circuit (PLC) technologies and all of which supports our strategic plan to expand our photonics roadmap to capitalise on immediate and longer-term growth opportunities in datacom, telecom and LiDAR markets."
