According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, Optical Amplifiers are used to update the communications networks to manage broadband, to update the data center networks to make them manage traffic with higher speeds, to implement the backbone network for mobile communications.
The optical amplifier component market is intensely competitive.
To address these constraints, especially in upstream bursts(2), Fujitsu and Fujitsu Laboratories have developed a burst-mode optical amplifier technology with a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)(3), an integrated SOA-array(4) module fabrication technology, and an SOA chip fabrication technology enabling uncooled operation.
Apart from inventive products, certain technical changes in older solutions such as optical amplifiers and connectors are also expected to spur the market.
