Molex has acquired of the business of wavelength selective switching (WSS) manufacturer, Nistica in a move to integrate high-port count WSS capability into its optical transport portfolio to help drive the growth of communications networks.
Molex Ventures is making a strategic investment and collaboration between the Molex Optical Solutions Group and Elenion Technologies in order to jointly develop, manufacture and promote silicon photonic-based product solutions.
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
