C3PO Research Project

Welcome to the project website of the "C3PO" European research project.

C3PO (Colourless and Coolerless Components for low Power Optical Networks) is an industry-driven project co-funded by the European Commission and aims to design and develop a new generation of energy-efficient photonic and electronic components and apply them to next-generation access and high-speed metro-core networks.
