 Project objective

We are on the verge of 5G arrival, the new standard bringing much higher speeds and more reliable connections to millions of end users and possibly billions of connected IoT devices. 5G networks require many more small sites than other cellular systems, and the industry agrees that their demand for bandwidth can only be met with fixed optical fibre connections. These are not available in many locations, and space in existing cable ducts is limited while accessing them is costly. At the same time, even at the speed of light, current Single-Mode Fibres have reached their theoretical capacity limit. Global IP traffic demand for urban fibre networks is forecast to grow at a blistering CAGR of 45% in the coming years. The problem is that current fibre infrastructure cannot continue to support the foreseen demand without an upgrade to carry the increased traffic beyond its theoretical capacity. However, deploying a completely new infrastructure is costly and therefore, not an option. It is a challenge to meet the growing demand using the existing infrastructure – this requires a new approach. At InPhoTech, we see this “Capacity Crunch” as an opportunity. Our patented IPT-CORE telecommunication technology uses seven cores in every single microstructured fibre as separate spatial channels, allowing the most effective use of our well-developed multiplexing methods to increase optical throughput seven times in the same physical space. By being fully compatible with existing infrastructure, IPT-CORE provides a cost-effective replacement for target customers such as 5G operators, providers of FTTx services, Long Distance Connections and Data Centres. Our ultimate goal is to become the world’s first mass-scale multicore optical fibre supplier, putting the EU at the same level as the US and Asia as global fibre providers. The technology will be held by InPhoTech and will generate a growth impact for the company of €23 million in profit 5 years after deployment.
