With Fiber Connect at hand, it's not surprising that this week's Friday 5 touches on next-generation broadband and municipal fiber networks. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy also touches on data center interconnect and other topics.
All we need is a bit of patience this week, as Lightwave Editorial Director comments on several broadband access stories, OTN for 5G fronthaul and backhaul, and one final look back at 2016.
Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy opens up about a new conference, cable operator and fiber-optic network service provider consolidation, and submarine network construction. And he exults in the newest optical transceiver MSA.
