LANGEN, Germany -- Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU), a market-leading provider of high-speed data converters, has enabled the large-scale deployment of single-wavelength 100Gbps optical transport systems worldwide. Fujitsu's expertise in mixed-signal, thermal, power-optimisation and high-performance package design are key ingredients for providing SoC ASIC solutions to system vendors, paving the way for the necessary upgrade to global networking infrastructure brought on by ever-increasing bandwidth demand and traffic flow.
This demand is expected to move the requirement for 100Gbps capacity lambdas from the long-haul network, running over a few thousand kilometres, to the mid-haul, or Metropolitan Area Network (MAN).
Distances are shorter in Metro networks (up to a few hundred kilometres), but port densities are higher so mechanical and thermal constraints will push 100Gbps SoC designs to be correspondingly even more power-efficient. At the same time, expectations are that system solution providers will need to be supported by SoC designs that will increase the capacity and spectral efficiency in the core network. This, in turn, will demand higher sampling rate converters for higher-order modulation schemes.
