EFFECT Photonics

EFFECT Photonics, a leading developer of high performance DWDM optical components based on its optical System-on-Chip technology. Headquartered in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, the birthplace of Philips, with additional R&D and manufacturing in South West UK, with sales partners worldwide.

EFFECT addresses the need for low-cost, wavelength-tunable optical transceivers with industrial temperature specification to be deployed within the next generation 5G mobile infrastructure. The global market demand for optical transceivers is expected to grow to $12bn by 2023, from $6bn in 2017 (Lightcounting, 2018).

5G mobile or fifth-generation wireless communication will enable interconnectivity with many different devices such as:

  • HD-streaming
  • Driverless and intelligence assisted vehicles
  • HD and ‘always on’ security cameras
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality (A/VR)

This in turn will accelerate the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) interconnecting computing devices and machines without the need for human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. The number of connected devices in 2017 was 20.35bn (worth over $1bn annually) and is expected to rise to 51.1bn connected devices by 2023 (Statista 2018).
