Summary: 
The economic success of monolithic optoelectronic and photonic ICs (OEICs, PICs) on InP depends strongly on their cost and performance. Taking into account these requirements as well as today's advanced hybrid integration approaches, the current status of monolithic InP integration technology is reviewed in examples, especially on components suitable for future telecommunication systems.
