This week's Friday 5 has a bit of an ECOC hangover -- but also perspectives on 600G, national governments as customers, open optical systems, and potential optical transceiver market fragmentation.
Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy opens up about a new conference, cable operator and fiber-optic network service provider consolidation, and submarine network construction. And he exults in the newest optical transceiver MSA.
The end (of an era) is near for Finisar, EXFO opens its checkbook again, Deutsche Telekom demands your fiber respect, and more in this week's Friday 5 with Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy. Sponsored by Champion ONE.
