Public Deliverables

This is the public version of PANTHER deliverable D5.2 titled "Delivery of single IQ transmitter (module-1) and single-polarization receiver (module-2)" Download here

This report describes the design of the packaging of the Module 1 (Single Polarization Transmitter), Module 2 (Single Polarization Receiver) and the design and packaging of two modules (Module 0 IN and Module 0 OUT) in which the two passive Polybord of Module 3 are assembled and packaged as components stand alone. The design and the packaging of the modules follow the methodology defined in the deliverable D5.1 of the PANTHER project. High Frequency design of the 2D RF interposer as well as the thermal and the thermo –mechanical analysis (Multiphysics analysis) of the Modules 1 and 2 are shown and discussed in the report.

This is the public version of PANTHER deliverable D5.3 titled "Delivery of twin IQ transmitter (module-3)" Download here

Thie specific report describes the developments in the PATHER module 3 design, simulation, characterization and assembly process description.

This is the public version of deliverables D5.4 ("Delivery of dual-polarization receiver (module-4) and of quad IQ transmitter (module-5)") and D5.5 ("Delivery of final PANTHER transceiver with symmetric 1.2 Tb/s net capacity (Module 6)") unified in a signle report. Download here

Deliverable D5.4 describes the packaging design and the packaging approach of the Module 3 (dual polarization transmitter), Module 4 (dual-polarization receiver) and Module 5 (quad IQ transmitter) of PANTHER project.

Deliverable D5.5 describes the methodology and the specific steps of the hybrid 2D/3D integration approach in reference to any future integration and final packaging of module-6.

This is the public version of deliverable D6.4 ("Evaluation of transmission performance of PANTHER transceivers in lab settings") Download here

The present document reports on the test in High-speed setup for the MODULE 1 of PANTHER at 64 Gbaud. The main objectives in this document are to generate electrical 32Gb/s data signals and 32GHz Clocks with low distortion, low Jitter RMS and large Extinction Ratio for the inputs of module 1. Furthermore, generate different modulation format QPSK, 16QAM, and 64QAM at 64Gbaud at 64Gbaud. Additionally, results from the testing of module 1 at ICCS/NTUA premises at 25 Gbaud is also presented, including the BER curves for QPSK and 16QAM. Error free operation achieved for QPSK and 16QAM at 25 Gbaud for back-to-back and transmission after 100 km.

This is the public version of deliverable D6.5 ("Development of edge SDN switch and evaluation in real network settings") Download here

This deliverable reports results on the evaluation of PANTHER transceiver in real settings using Telecom Italia (TIM) network resources. It describes the experimental setup and the results from the transmission experiments at 25 Gbaud with three different modulation formats (QPSK, 16 QAM, 64 QAM), the reconfiguration capability of the device by an SDN controller, the integration of the SDN transceiver control platform in the SDN management meshed network architecture and the evaluation of the edge SDN switch/data-center gateway integrating PANTHER technology in some representative scenarios.
The trial has been performed in Telecom Italia premises in Torino, Italy, from October 9th to 20th. Equipment was installed in three different sites, two network exchanges and a lab termination site. Modules 0 and 1 were employed for the experiment, and this choice is justified by component availability at the time of the trial.

This is he public version of deliverable D7.4 ("Standardization of PANTHER technology and manufacturability plan") Download here

The first part of this report describes the basic fabrication steps for the four main types of components that are involved in the development of PANTHER modules (the InP photodiodes (PDs), the InP Mach-Zehnder modulators (MZM), the polymer chips (PolyBoards) for the processing of light at the transmitter/receiver side, and the InP-double heterojunction bipolar transistor (InP-DHBT) electronic components).Specific modifications / improvements in the fabrication process are described in order to support a true production line for this type of transceivers in the future. Moreover, the document describes the basic methodology and decisions regarding the assembly of these components and the packaging of PANTHER transceivers. Also in this case, specific modifications are outlined in order to improve the automation of this process and support medium or high volume production.
The second part of the document presents the progress on the definition of the standards for the development of high-capacity optical transceivers for metropolitan and wide area networks. PANTHER component and integration technology appears to cover the requirements of these standards regarding the speed, flexibility, power consumption and form-factor of the optical transceivers and reveals the exploitation potential of PANTHER technology.

This is the public version of deliverable D7.5 ("Second period report on exploitation plans and project dissemination - Final plan for the use and dissemination of foreground knowledge") Download here

The present document reports on the dissemination activities that have been performed within the second period of PANTHER project, between the months M19 to M44. The main objectives of dissemination project outcomes are through interactions with industry, academia and the scientific community, the contribution to standardization and planning for exploitation of PANTHER technology in commercial applications.
All technical contributions to deliverables were submitted to journals, conferences or standardization bodies to assure their technical quality.
