The amount of computing horsepower at our disposal today is growing at a staggering rate, driven by huge gains in processing performance, power optimization and architectural innovations. This progress is being driven at every level of the technology market, but none more so than the High-Performance Computing (HPC) ecosystem.
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
