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.
Our special WDM themed edition of the Friday 5 wasn't planned -- that's just the way the week went. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy also discusses Acacia's production issues as well as yet another hopeful sign for 400G deployments.
All we need is a bit of patience this week, as Lightwave Editorial Director comments on several broadband access stories, OTN for 5G fronthaul and backhaul, and one final look back at 2016.
