Abstract

In a fast changing world where information technology drives economic prosperity, the number of data centres has grown significantly in the past few years. These data centres require large amount of energy in order to meet up with increasing demands. An overview of energy efficient optical interconnects as a means of reducing energy consumption without compromising speed and accuracy was presented. New methods by which energy efficiency can be achieved using OCDMA multiplexing techniques for future optical interconnections were discussed. We also presented some challenges that might inhibit effective implementation of the OCDMA multiplexing scheme.
