This graduate-level course will systematically explore the fundamentals of optical interconnects in computer systems. The course will discuss the design, implementation and value of optical interconnects of a variety of sizes: long-haul optical interconnects, datacenter-scale optical interconnects and server-scale optical interconnects.

When Offered Fall.

  • Explain how long-haul fiber connects planet-scale datacenter deployments
  • Explain the design and implementation of optically switched datacenters
  • Explain the design and implementation of optical interconnects within servers
  • Develop hands-on understanding of these interconnects through class projects that involve data collection of deployed interconnects, systems development leveraging the capabilities of interconnects etc.
