Comcores TSN expertise and 5G communication experience to be deployed in a major EU funded mission with pan-European companions


Morten Kofoed Esbjørn v– Jan 20 2023 — The OCTAPUS initiative is an EU funded mission, which began in September 2022 and is funded till February 2026. OCTAPUS stands for “Optical Circuit switched Time-Delicate Community (TSN) structure for highspeed Passive optical networks and subsequent technology Extremely-dynamic & reconfigurable central workplace environments”, and the objective is to ship an agile, low-cost and power environment friendly Photonic Built-in Circuit (PIC) expertise framework.

OCTAPUS was funded in responds to the rising international demand for fastened and cell bandwidth capability that has risen massively within the final years. This rise is due an rising recognition of Over-The-High (OTT) video streaming companies and the rise of Machine-to-Machine communications. It’s predicted that Machine-to-Machine communication will account for roughly 50% of all international related gadgets by subsequent yr.

As a result of rising 5G and industrial web purposes pose strict latency-oriented framework, this severely challenges the 5G infrastructure, and a brand new architectural change to the infrastructure is critical. That is why OCTAPUS will re-architect the Subsequent Technology Central Workplace (NGCO) ecosystem, transparently upgrading its capability, via an revolutionary dynamic reconfigurable optically-switched backplane and novel photonic transceiver toolkit.

Comcores will actively contribute to the mission with our experience inside ethernet TSN expertise and 5G, particularly our information {of electrical} switching and TSN options. We are going to present a switching material and a community interface card with TSN capabilities on FPGA based mostly platforms and a community controller. That is accomplished to attain dynamic TSN configuration via a centralized community controller to help load balancing, whereas nonetheless sustaining High quality of Service (QoS) via TSN.
