Fujitsu has developed a new technology that allows for higher signal quality in fiber optic cables over longer distances. It consumes a whole lot less energy. The ‘digital signal processing algorithm’ can both compensate for waveform distortion and extend the range of long-haul optical signals. The algorithm allowed Fujitsu to create small size that can consume two-thirds less power throughout an entire network.
The new technology has been succeeded in extending the long-haul operating range of optical signals. It represents a considerable improvement of approximately three times compared to circuits that was already developed by Fujitsu earlier. Long-haul transmission systems are used in the trunk-line networks of telecom carriers and networks. It ties together large data-centers. But the new technology works beyond signal re-generators. It can make high-speed transmission systems at low cost. Undoubtedly, it will help the next-generation smart phone users.
According to the company, it managed to gain higher signal quality with its new one-stage circuit in a 112Gbps transmission test. Before this, they used to get lower signal quality from standard 20-stage circuit. Theoretically, this technology can be used to create fiber optic networks that are not only faster at present, but also cheaper and more energy efficient.
