For many years, HUBER+SUHNER products, systems and services have made a significant contribution to the expansion and development of global mobile communications, fixed networks and data centre infrastructure. High-quality components and customer-specific solutions have guaranteed perfectly functioning connections whether electrical, optical or wireless.
HUBER+SUHNER Cube Optics will present its latest, ultra-compact, extended LAN-WDM optical sub-components at this year’s European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) in Düsseldorf, Germany, booth 259.
The new optical sub-components – which conform to the IEEE 802.3bs 400GBase-LR8/FR8 proposal and are compatible with the CFP8 form factor – comprise a compact, directly-reflecting, wavelength multiplexer. The product builds on the proven, reliable design applied in 100GBase-LR4/ER4 and 40GBase-LR4/ER4 transceivers.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
