SEPIANet is an EU funded collaborative research and development project, the aim of which is to develop technology solutions for embedded optical architectures in access network head-end systems in order to allow both a significant reduction in power consumption and increased energy efficiency, system density and bandwidth scalability.
During its 2.5 year duration, the SEPIANet project consortium has tackled the substantial challenges associated with bringing to fruition a disruptive optical PCB technology and supporting eco-system.
These efforts have culminated in the successful development and demonstration of system embedded planar glass waveguide optical backplane and pluggable optical interconnect technologies.
