A research team at Intel has developed a photonic engine with the equivalent processing power of 16 100-Gb transceivers, or four of the latest 12.8-Tb generation.
At the Optical Networking and Communication Conference in San Diego, Intel researchers described a possible solution to helping computer networks keep up with a growing demand for data.

Reports from 2019 suggest that approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are produced each day, and that number is growing. All that data has to be routed from consumer hard drives and other processors through multiple servers as it passes through other computers.
