OMPlex-R Series

Unleashing the full potential of existing multimode fibre infrastructure.

The rapidly growing data demand, driven by machine learning, cloud computing, virtual reality and high definition media streaming, means that existing multimode optical fibre infrastructure has reached its capacity limit. Multimode optical fibres are inherently limited in their capacity and reach. Multimode optical fibres find extensive use as backbones in Data Centres and large buildings and multi-building campuses such as Schools, Hospitals, Shopping Centres, etc. Their widespread use is due to their relatively low cost, in particular with respect to endpoint hardware. To date costly re-cabling, resulting in building works and service interruptions, has required in order to upgrade the fibre capacity.

Modular Photonics offers a simple plug-in rack-based solution (OMPlex-R Series) that greatly enhances the capacity of existing fiber infrastructures. It allows for effortless installation and does not require electrical connections.

Single-mode performance across multimode fibre.

Modular Photonics’ technology relies on selective mode excitation. Multimode fibres support a large number of  propagation modes. Our technology accesses individual modes, avoiding modal dispersion, and enabling single-mode fibre performance across multimode optical fibre.

OMPlex-R by Modular Photonics relies on exclusive excitation of the fundamental modes in multimode optical fibres. This allows for state-of-the art single-mode transceivers to be operated across the legacy multimode fibre networks, improving the capacity and transmission reach by up to 1000×. The OMPlex-R series is suitable for OM1, 2, 3 and 4 fibre and has been validated using up to 100G-LR4 transceivers.
