PASADENA, Calif. — Next-generation data center technology provider Rockley Photonics Ltd. has received a Global Technology Innovation Award from analyst firm Frost & Sullivan for its R&D in networking infrastructure technology.

“The sheer level of Rockley’s technology integration is expected to be the first in the industry and will undoubtedly provide a glimpse of future networking technology,” said Jabez Mendelson, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Rockley has demonstrated its ability to combine photonics and electronics in a unique architecture, which will enable it to simplify switch design, create vastly more scalable networks using much larger switches and drive down the cost per bit while substantially reducing power consumption.”

Rockley’s integrated networking technology is designed to enable large data centers to upscale their networking infrastructure to meet the projected growth in compute power. Experts have suggested that data traffic in cloud data centers may require 1000× more bandwidth than that deployed today in order to keep up with demand for internet services over the next 10 years.

“It was the complete visionary application and solution combined with the technology attributes and future business value that strongly contributed to Rockley Photonics’ success in achieving this award,” Mandelson said.

Frost & Sullivan recognizes companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
Rockley Photonics is a provider of integrated optics, CMOS electronics, software and computer networking with silicon photonics.
