We're open (networks) for business this week. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy reviews several open optical announcements as well as what's new in M&A and whether we're looking at a downturn in the optical communications market.
This week's Friday 5 provides some teachable moments. Google Fiber seems to have learned a lesson, and module vendors focused on the data center could learn a lesson from what's going on in China. Class is in session!
Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy sits down at ECOC 2017 with Siddharth Sheth, SVP, networking interconnect at Inphi, to discuss the latest in PAM4 silicon, the company's COLORZ pluggable optical transceiver, and more.
