Orckit is an active partner in OptiBand project.
OptiBand focus on optimizing the bandwidth of IPTV for the delivery of multiple HD streams over a single ADSL line, and by that enabling multiple HD channels per household.
The project conducts in-depth research and development regarding the efficient distribution of video content using smart data drop algorithm within the telecommunication aggregation networks, while preserving quality of experience according to both objective and subjective.
The main objectives are:
- Providing more HD video over existing access technology and IPTV networks
- Providing Scalable Personalized Quality of Experience
- Providing content aware data drop algorithm
- Achieving all the project objectives while maintaining the existing IPTV ecosystem intact

Video related content consumes significant and expensive OTT bandwidth. The Net-HD consortium develops new innovative technologies that will be able to increase the effectiveness of bandwidth delivery in networks using Video adaptation, Multi-Layer Caching, and P2P without increasing the physical links.
Orckit participates in the Net-HD consortium as the networking vendor providing innovative transport delivery technologies. Orckit technologies provide special E-Net-HD services which support variable user profiles. The efficient transport supports advanced traffic management, hard QoS, and smart resource allocation.

Tera Santa is a consortium formed by companies and universities, whose goal is to develop a system that can deliver 1 Tbps over a single optical fiber. The project involves advanced technologies such as high-order modulation and forward error correction schemes, adaptive rate techniques, optical components and technologies for OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) systems such as TOCG (tunable optical comb generator), wavelet-OFDM, AWG (arrayed waveguide grating) and hybrid InP/Si modulators.
Orckit chairs the transponder working group and is also active in the architecture working group. Orckit’s main contributions are related to the 1 Tbps transponder architecture and components, physical and logical interfaces with the optical network (in both OTN and Ethernet flavors), OAM (Operations, Administration and Maintenance) toolset definitions and adaptive rate functionality and algorithms.
