There's a lot of packet routing in this week's Friday 5, along with advances in metro network technology, expansion of SD-WAN services, and G.fast getting ready to deploy...uh, fast. Sponsored by Senko Advanced Components.
Finisar Chairman and CEO Jerry Rawls comments on first calendar quarter business, what he expects for the rest of 2017, why Finisar isn't working with Ciena on coherent modules, and more with Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy.
Stephen Hardy's Friday 5 gets a facelift! (Alas, Stephen does not.) Plus, carrier capex, standardization and collaboration in SDN/NFV, and the march of 100 Gigabit Ethernet.
