    Silicon Photonics – Cisco and Intel see “Light at the End of the Tunnel”

    viodiDOTcom/2013/11/08/silicon-photonics-cisco-intel-see-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel/

    Excerpt:

    Silicon Photonics is a new approach to using light (photons) to move huge amounts of data at very high speeds with extremely low power over a thin optical fiber rather than using electrical signals over a copper cable. It’s been in the research stage at Intel for over 10 years, while a few component/module companies have already shipped SiPh receivers (but not integrated transmitter/receivers or transceivers yet).
    ...
    Exponentially increasing Internet traffic along with the Internet of Things (IoT) will place a huge burden on next generation, cloud resident data centers. The new requirements include: higher system performance, coping with higher power consumption via more effective cooling concepts, faster interconnect speeds (between components, modules, cards, and racks). The challenge for designers is to provide faster compute/storage/networking systems with more effective bandwidth/performance per Watt and with highly efficient cooling. Hopefully, all that can be provided at improved cost/ performance/power efficiency to the owner of the data center.
    ...
    Intel claims that Silicon photonics offers a way to extend silicon manufacturing to higher speeds and thus provide low cost opto-electronic solutions and tremendous bandwidth. The results would be advances in a wide range of applications in servers, high-performance computing, and networking. Recent developments point to practical applications in the near term. For example, a new optical connector and fiber technology support data rates up to 1.6 terabits per second.
    ...
    But Intel may be announcing SiPh products very soon. This past January, they announced they’re working with Facebook on 100G b/sec rack interconnects for Data Centers.

    And we couldn’t help notice this Intel job advertisement for a SiPh Market Development Manager.

    Would Intel be hiring such a person if a product announcement was not forthcoming
