VCSELs continue to be widely deployed in data communication networks. The total bandwidth requirements continue to grow, resulting in higher data rates and utilization of both spatial and wavelength multiplexing. This paper will discuss recent results on VCSELs operating at aggregate speeds up to 1000Gbps as well as the prospects and results on extending to higher serial data rates.
