If your internet or mobile phone gives you a very clear signal so that you can watch your choice of movie live in your pocket, then it is partially due to the bandwidth that we provide,” Mr. Jenks begins. The Company’s photonic integrated circuits are, “chips that work with light, as light. Essentially, light goes into the chip, is manipulated by the chip, and all the networks that provide voice, network data and video are really optical. Keeping the light in the light domain is what our chips do,” Mr. Jenks explains. In the video, Mr. Jenks goes to describe the market for this technology when he states: “Today, everyone is using more and more bandwidth…our chips are helping you deliver your message every day in the optical domain by wireless means or desktop means. The chips help make it possible for the bandwidth that is being consumed. There’s an order of magnitude increase happening almost annually in the amount of bandwidth that is being used, and we have to keep up with that,” Mr. Jenks concludes.
