After missing last week, Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy is back with looks at 400G in data center interconnect, CEO insights on the year ahead, XGS-PON vs. NG-PON2, a really big fiber cable order, and more.
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.
The FCC gets set to roll back the clock, carriers appear ready to roll forward with more NFV, 50G designs are about to get rolling (if they haven't already) and submarine networks roll with the changes in this week's Friday 5. Sponsored by Anritsu.
