Title: Technology and Challenge in Packet-Optical Engine
During the past few decades, to meet the ever-growing capacity requirement, several degrees of freedom of photon have been efficiently utilized to multiplex low-speed electrical data streams. To further move towards high-speed, low-cost, low-power ethernet, integrated photonics seems to be the only possible route. Packet-optical engine can potentially fuel the optical transport network in a more efficient and manageable manner.

We introduce the latest trend of pluggable optical module form factors, and review the latest progress and challenges of client and line-side packet-optical products in the optical communications and networking industry. Furthermore, we discuss our recent demonstration on a compact solution to timing skew and power imbalance of dual-polarization quadrature amplitude modulation (DP-QAM) transmitter in the packet-optical module. An integrated photodiode can be implemented to perform the function, by simply monitoring the transmitter output power. Fast detection algorithm for arbitrary skew is also proposed and experimentally verified. The scheme is compatible with different modulation formats, flexible data sequences, and variable waveforms.
