There's a lot of packet routing in this week's Friday 5, along with advances in metro network technology, expansion of SD-WAN services, and G.fast getting ready to deploy...uh, fast. Sponsored by Senko Advanced Components.
Cisco predicts the future, NG-PON2 supporters look toward the future, and Oaktree brightens Coriant's future. All this and more from Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy in this week's Friday 5 video. Sponsored by Corning.
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.
