With applications like AI, big data analytics and the cloud spurring the growing demand for low-power, high-bandwidth data transfer, the global silicon photonics market size is expected to reach $7.5 billion by 2030¹. Gartner forecasts that by 2025, silicon photonics will be used in more than 20% of all high-bandwidth data center communications channels, up from less than 5% in 2020². As volumes increase and costs go down,  possible uses for silicon photonics could increase across several industries, including automotive, data center and high-performance computing, telecommunications, medical, and aerospace and defense.

With 30 years of design and manufacturing experience, Celestica has the expertise and capabilities to develop cutting-edge optical technologies to ease the transition from early prototypes to volume production. Celestica is working with industry leaders to commercialize technologies such as On-Board Optics (OBO) and Co-Packaged Optics (CPO) in order to address the demand for speed and cost-efficiency in today’s evolving technology landscape. By integrating our next-generation networking products with our silicon photonics packaging solutions, we can optimize supply chain solutions to reduce the time to market for these technologies.

This year, we will be demonstrating our capabilities at the annual OFC Conference and Exhibition from March 26-28 with Hyper Photonics. We invite you to visit Hyper Photonix booth #1223 for a demonstration showing how Celestica’s data center switches combined with optical transceivers have the potential to handle and sustain high volumes of both inbound and outbound network traffic to address the demand for data center bandwidth in support of AI/ML and data analytics applications. 

Experts from Celestica will be available at the Hyper Photonix booth at the OFC Show on March 26-28, 2024. Meet with us to learn more about Celestica’s DS4000 (400G) and DS4101 (800G) data center switches and how we’re driving innovative solutions to meet increased bandwidth requirements while reducing both power and cost per bit. If you can’t attend the show this year, simply visit our landing page to schedule a meeting to discuss Celestica’s innovative solutions and optical capabilities.
