LightCounting has released its June 2018 Quarterly Market Update Report. Amongst the key findings, the specialist market research company cites ZTE as ‘an early casualty of the unfolding trade war’ and warns that some sales will be impacted in Q2 of 2018.
Chinese optoelectronics manufacturer Accelink Technologies has introduced a 1550nm 100Gb/s PSM4 transceiver based on Mellanox’s low-power, silicon photonics optical engine. This module format serves the growing demand from hyperscale and cloud data centre providers for parallel singlemode optics within data centres.
Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance
Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G
Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
