Sumitomo Electric Develops New-type Multi-Core Optical Fiber for Optical Interconnects and Realized Highest-Density Multi-Core Fiber Optic Cable

Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. has developed a multi-core optical fiber including 8 cores in the standard 125 -µm cladding suitable for optical interconnects, and realized an ultra-high-density fiber optic cable with the high core density ever reported. To cope with the growing data traffic in the short-reach interconnects used for parallel processing in supercomputers and resource disaggregation in data centers, optical interconnect technologies for broadband high-density transmission are intensively researched and developed. At the same time, the multi-core optical fiber (MCF) 2 that has multiple cores in one fiber has been also intensively researched and developed. The MCF is expected as aoptical fiber that can realize ultra-high-capacity transmission systems. Most of the ever-reported MCF developments had permitted the cladding diameter thicker than the standard 125 -µm optical fibers to increase core count while realizing good optical properties of each core and suppressing core-to-core crosstalk. The MCF also has optical characteristics comparable to the standard single-mode fiber (SSMF) specialized for 1.3 -µm wavelength band where signal distortion can be suppressed. Having such features, the 125 -µm cladding realizes the mechanical reliability equivalent to that of the standard optical fibers, and can utilize various technologies related to the standard optical fibers such as cabling and connecting technologies. The core count of 8 has been desired since full-duplex (2 × -) 100-Gb/s (4 × 25 Gb/s) signals can be transmitted over one MCF with a transmitting and receiving technology for the conventional 25-Gb/s signals. The realized optical characteristics have a high affinity to silicon photonics technology that realizes highly integrated optical devices operable at 1.3 -µm band. The company fabricated a 12-MCF cable using the developed MCFs, in which 96 cores were included within an outer diameter of 3 mm. The achieved core density was more than 2 times higher than those of ever-reported fiber optic communication cables. The company also evaluated the transmission characteristics in 1.3-μm band of the 1.1-km-long MCF cable. The evaluation test using 100G-ethernet (100GBASE-LR4) transceiver revealed that the MCF cable assures the error-free transmission for 800 Gb/s (8 cores × 4 wavelengths × 25 Gb/s) signals, which is 8 times higher than the SSMF case. The results of the transmission experiment indicate that the developed MCF cable has the transmission capacity no less than 9.6 Tb/s (12 fibers × 8 cores × 4 wavelength × 25 Gb/s). Improvements on transceivers can further enhance the transmission capacity.

Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. Releases Smart Chaser

Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. has released a network camera-enabled device, Smart Chaser. As part of its lineup of Video Content Analysis Units, Smart Chaser, is able to automatically detect a person from a surveillance camera image using advanced image recognition technology. This device is in addition to the release of an analog camera-enabled system, which was announced earlier this year. While an increasing number of surveillance cameras are being installed in various locations to prevent crime and ensure safety, in many cases, video images are monitored by human eye 24 hours a day, which may result in failures to proactively detect unusual situations. In addition to its monitoring capability, Smart Chaser provides the ability to detect imminent danger. A conventional monitoring system, only used for viewing and recording images, can be upgraded to an advanced system that gives an alert when an irregular incident occurs. The function to detect intrusion and loitering in designated area can be used in a wide variety of situations in order to prevent crimes and improve security. While improving security, this system can also be used to ensure prevention of social concerns as well.
