The International Photonics & Electronics Committee (IPEC) is an international standards organization that is committed to developing open optoelectronic standards and delivering strategic roadmap reports. IPEC focuses on standardizing solutions in optical chips, optical/electrical components, and optical modules. Markets addressed by IPEC include 5G, IoT and AI. The gradual digitalization of these industries and the construction of new infrastructure require standardization. However, current optoelectronic standards are reactive, do not pro-actively motivate strategic investments, and do not address all market segments. Therefore, IPEC will look beyond the work of other standards organizations. IPEC will support the optoelectronic industry for the long term, and address un-met needs of its members.
IPEC is open to any interested party who wishes to join. All members have the opportunity to participate in developing all IPEC standards and reports on a non-discriminatory basis. The process of developing these standards and reports is transparent to all members. IPEC is registered in Switzerland.
