OFC 2018 was the platform from which Photon Kinetics introduced its next-generation automated multi-fibre handler, the 1050C Cable Aligner.
At this year’s OFC 2015 exhibition, Photon Kinetics, a provider of measurement equipment for optical fibre and cable manufacturers, introduced the 2300 Fiber Analysis System, which it says is the first optical fibre test instrument able to perform both cut-off wavelength (spectral loss) and fibre geometry measurements.
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
