This week's Friday 5 is (almost) all business. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy discusses fiber-lit buildings, cable operators as business services providers, M&A, and more. Sponsored by Senko Advanced Components.
This week's Friday 5 has a bit of an ECOC hangover -- but also perspectives on 600G, national governments as customers, open optical systems, and potential optical transceiver market fragmentation.
