Lightelligence Introduces Optical Interconnects for Composable Data Center Architectures

Stand 349

23rd August 2023

Lightelligence, the global leader in photonic computing and connectivity systems, announced Photowave™, the first optical communications hardware designed for PCIe and Compute Express Link (CXL) connectivity. As compute and memory stranding becomes an increasingly costly issue for data center workloads, the industry backed CXL standard enables the disaggregation of compute, accelerator, and memory resources to reduce stranding of resources while improving infrastructure efficiency. The current Ethernet-based infrastructure carries too much latency overhead to enable this disaggregation. Photowave provides a solution by interconnecting remote devices together using CXL over lower-latency fiber optic cable, extending reach to enable memory pooling at pod scales and beyond.
