Think Sumitomo Electric is only active in modules and fiber? Christopher Wiggins, director of business development at Sumitomo Electric, sets you straight with a discussion of their interconnect line. He also reviews three booth demos.
Huawei looks to avoid catching whatever ZTE's got, the benefits of FTTH are further demonstrated, the regional fiber network space keeps consolidating, and more in today's Friday 5 video with Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy.
This head-banging edition of the Friday 5 includes a salute to a pair of science experiments, one of which Stephen may live to see reach the field. Also, there's cable operator capex, BT pledging to spend money on FTTP and more news on ZTE.
