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.
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.
What's the sound? It's the footsteps of approaching 400G technology and deployments! Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy also tells you what he expects to see at ECOC 2017, comments on single-lambda 100G, and chats about chips.
