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.
Companies are collaborating, merging, virtualizing, and looking into white box next-gen access platforms in this week's Friday 5 video. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy offers insights into it all. Sponsored by Senko Advanced Components.
Who knew Stephen was so beady-eyed? This week's Friday 5 addresses mergers in test and measurement, specifications for 400 Gbps and beyond, free-space optics at sea, and sales of disaggregated DWDM platforms for data center interconnect.
