  • Avanex Joins Consortium to Develop Firewall

Photonics Spectra
Jan 2007
Avanex Corp. of Fremont, Calif., has joined a consortium seeking to develop a reconfigurable photonic firewall subsystem on a chip. The system would allow optical data inspection using security algorithms that are optimized for very high speed operation. The three-year project — known as Wirespeed Security Domains Using Optical Monitoring — has been funded with €2 million from the European Union.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
