#University of Duisburg-Essen, 02/2017

IPHOBAC-NG succeeds in delivering optical 2.5 Gbit/s GPON over the air using its novel direct fiber-to-radio technology.




ORANGE Polska and UDE perform field trials for long distance GPON extension

ORANGE Polska and UDE conducted a pilot test of a prototype radio link system for GPON. This technology will allow in a few years to replace fiber by a millimeter-wave radio link capable of transmitting data rates of up to 10 Gb / s.    [»more], 03/2017

An antenna that bridges the last mile almost lossless has been testet at French network operator Orange. The optical signal is brought at a datarate of 1 GBit / s into the household without optoelectronic baseband conversion and further electronic signal processing.




#NRZ newspaper, 03/2017

The antennas developed by Prof. Dr. Andreas Stöhr and his team at UDE are capable of transmitting data volumes of up to 40 gigabits per second.




#University of Duisburg-Essen, 02/2017

IPHOBAC-NG developed a coherent photonic mixer (CPX) for direct conversion of baseband optical signals to E-band radio (71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz).

Surfing the Internet at ultra-high speed - this is what has been enabled by the worldwide fiber network. However, expansion is progressing at a slug speed, also in Germany and especially in the country side. Unfortunately, laying fibers in the ground is time consuming and expensive. But there is hope: a new photonic antenna unit provides the same speed by radio and can be installed in a few days. It has now been successfully tested in the network of a European telecom company. The antenna was developed by the Optoelectronics department at University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE).

Nowadays people often have little time, everything has to be faster, especially the Internet. Glass fiber is considered as the ne plus ultra, but there are also alternatives. At the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE), researchers are now testing data transmission using high-speed rf links. The advantage of this method is that, in contrast to glass fibers, no underground cables have to be laid.
