Fujitsu Optical Components Limited and Fujitsu Limited announced today that they have been awarded The Ichimura Prize in Industry for Distinguished Achievement for their "Development and Commercialization of High Speed 100Gbps Modules for Optical Communications." The 48th Ichimura Prizes in Industry is promoted by the New Technology Development Foundation.
The Ichimura Prizes in Industry, organized by The New Technology Development Foundation and now in their 48th year, are presented annually to researchers or groups who make a significant contribution to industry by developing exceptional industrial technology in Japan.
The two companies developed the below technologies, and successfully commercialized devices which have become key components in achieving 100Gbps optical networks. These include a receiving device (coherent receiver), a transmitting device (optical modulator) that supports the 100G digital coherent method, and the coherent optical transceiver equipped with the transmitting and receiving devices.
By supplying system providers worldwide with these modules for optical communications, the two companies supported the spread of 100Gbps optical network markets and had a major impact on the development of digital societies.
Currently, the companies are developing 100+ Gbps optical communications modules to support increased communications traffic. Winning the Contribution Prize has reinforced the companies' determination to advance the development of these modules for the further evolution of digital societies.
