After looking at the Top 5 stories of 2017 last week, Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy names the Top 5 of 2018 -- all two weeks of it. Scandal, executive reshuffling, closed R&D efforts, and more have made 2018 an eventful year already.
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.
The IEEE expects LANs to see the light, Nokia isn't buying, AT&T wants to buy but the DoJ won't let them, and other optical communications related news from the past two weeks are all detailed in this week's Friday 5 video.
