Ofidium Raises Funding for 100 Gbps OFDM

Ofidium, a start-up based in Melbourne, Australia, secured A$6 million Series A and outlined plans to commercialize its unique optical OFDM technology capable of 100 Gbps transmissions. The venture funding came from Starfish Ventures.

Ofidium said its patented optical OFDM technology, which was pioneered by Professors Jean Armstrong and Arthur Lowery of Monash University, provides highly cost-efficient capacity growth for new optical fiber, and dramatic performance improvements for existing network infrastructure. OFDM is the dominant technology in a range of other communications applications. The company plans to offer optical OFDM transceiver modules for DWDM systems.
