Network SoC BU
Most Advanced Network SoC Solution
Meeting Growing Network Demand
Due to the proliferation of smart devices, expansion of cloud computing, increase in Internet distribution of 4K videos, and other technologies and services, network capacity demand is continuing to grow rapidly. Coherent optical data transmission at rates of 100Gbps and higher is the key underlying technology supporting capacity growth in core, Metro and data communications fiber-optic networks. Socionext Network SoC BU provides IP and base technology for the most advanced digital coherent SoCs being deployed today. While 100G optical networks are rapidly expanding, it is essential to carry out research and development for the practical realization of next-generation 400G and 1T (Tera) optical networks. Leveraging over 30 years’ of experience developing custom SoCs, combined with specialist high-speed analogue, mixed-signal and digital design, Socionext Network SoC BU continues to provide leading edge IP helping our customers to design systems for current and future networks.
