TOEC Overview

A new research center has been launched at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). Researchers with the Terabit Optical Ethernet Center (TOEC) will develop the technology necessary for a new generation of Ethernet a thousand times faster, and much more energy efficient, than today’s most advanced networks. They are aiming for 1 Terabit Ethernet over optical fiber—1 trillion bits per second—by 2015, with the ultimate goal of enabling 100 Terabit Ethernet by 2020. In order to meet the complexity, cost, power and footprint requirements of future Terabit Ethernet, Green photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and high performance electronics as well as Ethernet protocols, systems and Terabit applications are areas addressed in the center research.
