Don't be frightened -- it's just the Halloween edition of the Friday 5! We sample a few treats like 400GbE, 10G EPON, and submarine cable networks for everyone. But, yeah, there are a few tricks as well from twisted-pair and HFC technologies.
The Friday 5 is back after a 2-week hiatus with several stories on next generation access technologies such as DOCSIS 3.1, G.fast, NG-PON2, the role of SDN. Plus, the IEEE tries to reach further and the China market presents a conundrum.
Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy introduces you to a new acronym, a new acquisition strategy, some soon to be newly available 400GbE transceivers, and a new look at optics sales in 2018 in the Friday 5 video. Sponsored by Viavi Solutions.
