Optical Networking refers to the use of optical fiber technology to transmit and manage data in a telecommunications network. In optical networking, information is conveyed through light signals that travel along optical fibers, which are thin strands of glass or plastic that can carry large amounts of data over long distances with high bandwidth and minimal signal loss.

Next-Generation Computing Finally Sees Light

Moore’s law is dead, as we have squeezed all the innovation out of silicon. Fiber optics is the solution to meet the computing needs of tomorrow. Today, we can already use the light traveling inside fiber optic cables as sensors that measure vibrations, sound, temperature, light, and pressure changes. We’re now developing the means to take this to the next level with photonic computing at the speed of light to provide faster reaction time, reduce energy consumption and improve battery range

NEC provides AI-based traffic monitoring system with fiber-optic sensing technology for NEXCO CENTRAL

NEC Corporation has deployed an AI-based traffic monitoring system to Central Nippon Expressway Company Limited (NEXCO CENTRAL). The system uses fiber-optic sensing and AI technologies to visualize traffic conditions, such as the location, speed, and direction of travel, from vibrations produced by vehicle movement.
