Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy brings you to Gothenburg, Sweden to discover what's hot at ECOC 2017 in this two-part series. This first video looks at new transceiver MSAs, 400G trends, and PAM4 silicon. Sponsored by EXFO and Inphi.
Private optical networks get more attention, virtualization and whitebox hardware reaches the access, DOCSIS 3.1 gains symmetrical 10G capabilities, and the data center market isn't as immune to bumps as previously thought. Sponsored by Champion ONE.
Who knew Stephen was so beady-eyed? This week's Friday 5 addresses mergers in test and measurement, specifications for 400 Gbps and beyond, free-space optics at sea, and sales of disaggregated DWDM platforms for data center interconnect.
