We step outside our optical comfort zone a bit this week, with looks at Wi-Fi and Gfast advances (and how they related to FTTH). We also turn our attention to FTTx M&A, SDN/NFV in access networks, and why the data center market is a pain in the butt.
Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy goes high speed in this week's Friday 5. He discusses quantum communications and the prospects for 600G, for example. He also touches upon what's new at the MEF as well as transceiver sales forecasts.
