Photonics is a key enabler of the Internet of Things
Without photonics, the interconnectedness of physical devices and their ability to share and analyze information about their surroundings would not be possible.

For its implementation the Internet of Things relies heavily on sensor technology. Sensors need to be small, robust and energy efficient to be embedded in machines, appliances, buildings and infrastructure and succesfully collect data over large periods of time.

Fibre optic sensors – manufactured using photonics technology – are not only more sensitive than existing electromagnetic sensors, but also faster operating, better able to withstand harsh conditions and immune to electromagnetic interference.

Some of the most significant photonics IoT applications are: communications, transportation, environmental monitoring, smart homes, factories, and gadgets.

The IoT event consists of several workshops where endusers and suppliers will meet and discuss what is needed for Internet of Things and how photonics can support this.

Photonics – saviour of data centers

More bandwidth, higher speeds and lower energy costs
As of 2018 more than 4 billion people worldwide are using the internet. Data traffic is growing at alarming rates and expected to double in size in the next three years. In the foreseeable future the current silicon chip based internet infrastructure will be unable to cope with the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth.

Photonics technology reveals the way forward with the creation of ultrafast chips and fibre optic cables based on light sources. By using light as a way of transmitting data these technologies far outperform the existing copper solutions. The speed photonics technology offers is indispensable in transitioning from 4G to 5G broadband. Continue reading “Photonics – saviour of data centers”

For instance, the once so much used mobile phone has become a smartphone with an app for calling someone. But the device itself offers far more possibilities with many different apps that can be used for a great number of different things. These developments are going faster and faster nowadays and offer a host of possibilities and challenges.” Continue reading “Slow and steady development is accelerating – Interview with Stijn Grove, Dutch Datacenter Association”
