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.
And we're back. This week we look at pairing orchestration platforms with OSS, next-gen optical module formats, optical components to support 5G, and Ericsson's picks for its 5G transport dance partners. Sponsored by Senko Advanced Components.
