ITNWON

ITN: WON

Full Name: Wideband Optical Networks

Duration: 1/1/2019-31/12/2022

Partners:

  • Aston University
  • Infinera
  • VPI Photonics
  • DTU
  • Fraunhofer HHI
  • Politecnico di Torino
  • TU Eindhoven
  • UGent

Objective:

  • The annual global Internet traffic will 127-fold increase from 2005 to 2021, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 24% from 2016 to 2021. In the context of such extraordinary traffic growth, the Consortium of 14 academic and industrial highly qualified institutions created the Wideband Optical Networks (WON) European Training Network (ETN), to promote international, inter-sectorial and multi/inter-disciplinary research activities and career development for a generation of early stage researchers. Solutions identified within WON will enable to overcome a possible traffic-crunch by achieving a 10-fold increase in the usable optical bandwidth of single-mode fibres. WON is covering all topics and expertise from design and development of photonic components, novel digital signal processing algorithms and system modelling to network and control management.

INTEC's Role:

  • Development of transfer printing technology for widely tunable narrow line width lasers for coherent optical transceivers
