@hm I don't think it will in the short to medium term. The fact that the strategic investors are Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks suggests this promising for long haul optical networking, the old Bookham Technology hunting ground.

This funding will enable the commercialization and widespread deployment of their solution and has the potential to transform and broaden the reach of the communications industry,"
