Organisation profile

New services such as broadband to every home streaming video and films on demand will dramatically increase the bandwidth required in our data and telecommunications networks. Optical fibre communications forms the backbone of all land based communications and as the bandwidth increases we require faster devices, switches and new systems concepts. Bristol research is contributing to this ever increasing requirement for bandwidth and flexibility through research into optical switch technology, wavelength conversion, high speed modulation, data regeneration and novel semiconductor lasers. We have the capability of testing systems at modulation speeds up to 40 Gb/s and with methods of aggregating channels to achieve throughput in excess of 1Tb/s over single fibres.
