The ‘first mile’ – the access connection at the home or business – connects people and things with the internet. And with hundreds of millions of wired connections across the world, the cost of the connection is extremely important. We have innovated new ways to bring fiber-like speeds to old wires, and to make fiber connections faster and less expensive. Along with advances in copper and fiber technology we are also inventing new wireless technology and the systems to help consumers get the services they need with superior performance and cost. Research areas include:

  • Passive optical networks 
  • High-speed signal processing
  • SoC design
  • 5G radio
