Welcome to QAMeleon
QAMeleon is a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) program, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon2020 framework targeting the topic ICT-30-2017 – Photonics KET 2017 and the initiative of the Photonics Public Private Partnership. The project has a duration of 4 years, from 01/01/2018 until 31/12/2021, comprising a consortium of 16 partners and coordinated by Institute of Communications & Computer Systems (ICCS) National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece.
QAMeleon aims to deliver a new generation of faster, cheaper, and greener photonic devices spanning from beyond state-of-the-art transponders to novel reconfigurable add drop multiplexers (ROADMs) towards scaling core and metro networks to the next decade enabling:
- SDN-enabled generation and reception of reconfigurable optical data-flows having increased spectral efficiency at ultra-high-speed rates up to 128 Gbaud with state-of-the-art modulation format techniques
- the development of scalable Colorless Directionless Contentionless and Gridless Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexing (ROADM) node architectures supporting spectrum sliceability and on-demand switching reconfigurability.
QAMeleon project supports the 3rd European Summer school on PICs for Optical Interconnects co-organized by QAMeleon's partner, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) and the Tyndall National Institute of Ireland
VPIphotonics has been selected to participate in the European Union’s QAMeleon program to develop next generation photonics and electronics technology.
