Optical Communication Chips to Manage the Exploding Data Traffic
Short Business Description:
Data traffic is exploding. The world’s IT infrastructure needs disruptive solutions to handle this amount of data.
At Lumiphase we create novel communication chips boosted by a unique optical crystal.
Our chips enable our customers to provide faster networks that consume less energy and will allow all of us to be better connected in the future.
Our society is becoming more and more digital, this development was further accelerated by the pandemic. Fundamental societal trends (video streaming/calls, connected objects, 5G, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, autonomous cars) will keep fueling the explosion of data traffic in the decades to come.
Internet content and service providers are under constant pressure to grow network and computing capacity, to reach more remote areas, while limiting their capex and opex as well as ensuring their sustainability and showing societal responsibility.
Forged with Lumiphase’s disruptive and unique technology developed with IBM in the past 10 years, the startup’s novel optical engines enable an unprecedented 20x improvement in Gbit-per-sec/$. This allow their customers to replace costly and power hungry electrical connections with optical ones, ultimately enabling a new paradigm in datacenters architecture leading to more flexible and efficient use of computing resources.
Lumiphase’s fundamental innovation solves an industry-wide problem while contributing to making our digital society more sustainable.
In the CEO’s own words: „We are a deep tech semiconductor hardware company developing products that make optical communication so cheap, compact and efficient that within ten years, we will grow the number of optical connections in datacenters and telecom networks across the globe from 10s of millions to 10s of billions, enabling every person on the planet to access higher quality and more intelligent services and content, while saving massive amount of energy and cost.“
