PASSION Project Kick-Off meeting
On December 12th-13th, 2017 the Kick-off meeting of PASSION project will take place in Milan, with the participation of 12 partners.
The project is a European H2020 project (RIA ICT-30 call PHOTONICS KET) led by Politecnico di Milano and coordinated by DEIB professor Pierpaolo Boffi.
The PASSION project will develop new photonic technologies for supporting agile metro networks, enabling capacities of Tb/ s per channel, 100 Tb/s per link and Pb/s per node over increased transport distances. A new metro network infrastructure is envisioned, fitting the network operator roadmap and targeting at least a tenfold reduction in components energy consumption and footprint. These breakthroughs are achieved by developing all the essential photonic building blocks.
PASSION will contribute to reinforce European industrial technological leadership in high-capacity photonic devices and sub-systems, addressing the growing market of metro network scenarios, improving business opportunities in Europe.
