A method of many-to-one auto-discovery between modules includes: a source (sender) module sends the same source-ID on all its connected ports (many). The module may not know on which port the ID is sent. A sink (receiver) module is capable of receiving IDs on its port (one). The sink port identifies the association-ID (AID) of one end of the association (between sender and receiver). The association may be established based on each module discovering the sink AID of the sender in both directions (bi-directional). Both directions may be required for the source signal to get received on a respective sink. The source signal may be sent asynchronously in each direction.

A photonic integrated circuit is provided that may include a substrate; one or more optical sources, on the substrate, to output light associated with a corresponding one or more optical signals; one or more waveguides connected to the one or more optical sources; a multiplexer connected to the one or more waveguides; and one or more light absorptive structures, located on the substrate adjacent to one of the one or more optical sources, one of the one or more waveguides, and/or the multiplexer, to absorb a portion of the light associated with at least one of the corresponding one or more optical signals.


Consistent with the present disclosure, a compact laser with extended tunability (CLET) is provided that includes multiple segments or sections, at least one of which is curved, bent or non-collinear with other segments, so that the CLET has a compact form factor either as a singular laser or when integrated with other devices. The term CLET, as used herein, refers to any of the laser configurations disclosed herein having mirrors and a bent, angled or curved part, portion or section between such mirrors. If bent, the bent portion is preferably oriented at an angle of at least 30 degrees relative to other portions of the CLET. Alternatively, the curve or bend portion may be distributed over different sections of the CLET over a series of arcs, for example. The waveguide extending between the mirrors is continuous, such that light propagating along the waveguide is not divided or split. The waveguide also constitutes a continuous waveguide path.

Systems and methods for a multi-layer network to achieve network resource isolation among clients using the same server network, such as a VPN in a multi-layered network and interaction within the node, may include interaction between a server layer (e.g. L0 Photonic network) and the client layer (e.g. L1 network) that help the client layer (L1) gather information about the server-layer (L0) connection affinities. For example, the use of server layer (L0) connection affinities to construct Virtual Network Topologies (VNT) and/or network abstractions for customer traffic isolations in client layer (L1), the use of VNT to offer physical and/or logical network resource isolation for L1 customers, and provide L1 VPN services in a multi-layer environment.

Various apparatus and methods may use iterative de-mapping/decoding to on received symbol estimates corresponding to interleaved coded modulation (ICM) using low-density parity check convolutional coding (LPDC-CC). The iterative de-mapping/decoding, may take the form of a multi-stage feed-forward arrangement that may include multiple identically designed stages, and the stages may use parallelism to increase speed and efficiency.


A device may include a first substrate. The device may include an optical source. The optical source may generate light when a voltage or current is applied to the optical source. The optical source may be being provided on a first region of the first substrate. The device may include a second substrate. A second region of the second substrate may form a cavity with the first region of the first substrate. The optical source may extend into the cavity. The device may include an optical interconnect. The optical interconnect may be provided on or in the second substrate and outside the cavity. The optical interconnect may be configured to receive the light from the optical source.

An optical communication system with tunable sources may include a first optical source configured to supply a first optical signal having a first wavelength and a second optical source configured to supply a second optical signal having a second wavelength. An arrayed waveguide grating may include input waveguides having associated first and second passbands, the first passband being spectrally spaced from the second passband, the first passband including the first wavelength and the second passband including the second wavelength. A control circuit may selectively control the first and second optical sources to supply one of the first and second optical signals to one of the input waveguides, wherein, when the first optical signal is supplied to one of the plurality of input waveguides, the first optical signal is output from the output waveguide, and when the second optical signal is supplied to one of the plurality of input waveguides, the second optical signal is output from the output waveguide.
