This week's Friday 5 provides some teachable moments. Google Fiber seems to have learned a lesson, and module vendors focused on the data center could learn a lesson from what's going on in China. Class is in session!
AT&T opens up XGS-PON, Sprint and Cox join up for small cells, the OIF dishes up CEI 4.0, and China may not be as much of an up market for mainstream component suppliers. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy brings you up to speed.
Don't be frightened -- it's just the Halloween edition of the Friday 5! We sample a few treats like 400GbE, 10G EPON, and submarine cable networks for everyone. But, yeah, there are a few tricks as well from twisted-pair and HFC technologies.
