A*STAR IME and Lumerical accelerate silicon photonics design

The photonics foundry at A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics (IME) has partnered with Lumerical Solutions, a provider of photonic design software, to develop a calibrated compact model library (CML) for IME’s silicon photonics platform and process design kit (PDK).

IME offers a 25G/s-capable silicon photonics platform and PDK, which are built on validated processes and devices. The foundry service enables PIC designers to build reliable devices with state-of-the-art performance, and achieve prototyping and product manufacturing with ease.

Sorrento extends repair service to Nortel customers in North America

Sorrento Networks International has launched its Nortel equipment repair service in North America following international demand. This announcement will builds on the already successful repair service in Deeside, North Wales, and Belfast, provided by the telecoms repair and support company, Comtek, which acquired the intellectual property rights and trademarks of Sorrento Networks back in 2014 (see Sorrento restarts its metro optical business).

Biarri Networks offers FTTx network design as a service

Australian company Biarri Networks is introducing fibre-to-the-x network design as a service under the brand Biarri Networks QED, which denotes ‘quality, elegant, designs’.

The new offering combines the company’s Fibre Optic Network Design (FOND) software with Biarri’s team of network planners – enabling customers to create complex FTTx network designs more quickly and at lower cost than ever before.

Setics upgrades FTTx design software

Setics has released Version 2 of Setics Sttar, its pre-planning, design and optimisation software for FTTx deployments.

Designed by telecom experts, the latest version of the software incorporates feedback from clients on numerous projects, to make it even better at handling projects from the early pre-planning phases to more detailed engineering studies, the company claims.

JDSU's TrueSpeed VNF tests virtualised functions

JDSU has introduced TrueSpeed VNF, a solution capable of assessing customer quality of experience in a virtualised computing environment. TrueSpeed VNF helps service providers resolve customer complaints about poor network performance. The virtualised network function (VNF) software can be deployed anywhere network operators and enterprises have computing resources in the network, and is interoperable with JDSU’s StrataSync-enabled T-BERD/MTS handheld network test instruments.  

Optical Network Expresse (ON-Expresse)

ASSIA, a solutions company for broadband service providers, has announced the launch of Optical Network Expresse (ON-Expresse), which will support Fiber-to-the-Basement (FTTB), Fiber-to-the-Distribution-Point (FTTdp), and Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) deployments. ON-Expresse, an extension of its flagship DSL Expresse network management and optimisation product, greatly simplifies deployment, operation and service assurance for access networks using Passive Optical Network (PON) technology.

Support for Automated APCO P25 Transmitter Compliance Testing

Tektronix, a provider of test, measurement, and monitoring instrumentation, has announced a compliance transmitter test solution for the Project 25 (P25) Common Air Interface (CAI) Phase 1 and Phase 2 standard. The company has also announced a series of new capabilities for its RSA5000B, RSA6000B and SPECMONB real time signal analysers.

Dyamic Optical Cloud

Coriant has announced the Coriant Dynamic Optical Cloud, an end-to-end and highly programmable infrastructure solution that enables service providers to address a rapidly changing world of dynamic, virtualised, high-bandwidth applications and services.

The Dynamic Optical Cloud solution is powered by metro-to-core packet optical networking capabilities and software-defined networking (SDN) intelligence dessigned to deliver a new level of programmability, automation and control of multilayer, multi-vendor transport networks, the company says.

TS-CM44013

TeraSquare, of Korea, a leading company in fabless semiconductor development, has unveiled a parallel CDR (clock data recovery) solution that is says dramatically improves signal quality across 100G systems and make massive power consumption savings in the process.
 
TeraSquare’s parallel CDR- TS-CM44013 slashes Integrated Chip (IC) power consumption to 0.75w compared to average CFP4 levels of 3.5w, does not require a clock reference and has built in JTOL testability- avoiding the current expensive requirement for external testing equipment.
