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.
This week's Friday 5 provides some teachable moments. Google Fiber seems to have learned a lesson, and module vendors focused on the data center could learn a lesson from what's going on in China. Class is in session!
