Software Defined Networking (SDN) at the Tactical Edge

Room: Conference Room, Bldg: National Electronics Museum

SDN has been a catalyst for data center re-architecting in terms of consolidation, simplification, orchestration, performance enhancements and cost savings. It is still an open research area to apply SDN principles at the Tactical Edge where links are relatively low rate, unreliable, nodes are highly mobile and there is no supporting infrastructure such as interconnected […]

Space-division multiplexing in optical fiber communications

Room: Conference Room, Bldg: National Electronics Museum

With data-centric network traffic growing exponentially between about 30% and 60% per year, fiber-optic transport networks are rapidly approaching their fundamental Shannon capacity limits. By 2020, leading-edge network operators will require capacities that are physically impossible to implement using conventional optical transmission technologies. We will explore key technology scaling disparities that are driving the looming […]

Photonic Millimeter Wave Systems for High Capacity Communications

Room: Conference Room, Bldg: National Electronics Museum

Pushing the wireless communications capacity above 100 Gbps will require new spectral regions, technologies and techniques.  Millimeter wave photonics technology appears poised to meet the new bandwidth and fidelity challenges and offers novel architectures, techniques, and system capabilities.  In this presentation we will discuss recent work developing and demonstrating millimeter wave photonic carrier generation, upconversion, […]
