Phoenix Photonics, the UK- based fi bre optics specialist, is taking part in a key european Union collaborative r&D project to investigate the technologies required to achieve a 100-fold increase on current telecommunications optical fi bre- based network capacity limits. Phoenix is focused on the

critical components part of the project. these will help the new telecommunications platform to keep pace with world demand as the physical capacity limitations of single mode fi bre transmission are reached. ‘components providing the

functionality of a network are the fundamental building blocks of any system,’ said Phoenix

Photonics’ ceo Dr Ian Giles. ‘the new fi bres proposed within the project – known as MoDe- GAP – to facilitate spatial division multiplexing, demand a whole new range of components. our role is to address the challenge to provide these advanced fi bre components, which will be based on our proven in-house technologies.’ MoDe-GAP is a project funded under the eU 7th Framework Programme. It is seeking to provide europe with a lead in the development of the next generation internet infrastructure. other organisations involved

alongside Phoenix are the University of Southampton’s optoelectronics research centre and eSPcI Paristech.
