Anthony Clarkson examines the opportunities that could be presented to networks by ‘dark fibre’
ProLabs has joined forces with a US provider of compatible network connectivity products as part of a new group launched by its private equity backer. Inflexion Private Equity completed its investment in the UK-based compatible transceiver supplier in June 2017, and has now announced the launch of Halo Technology as a global vendor of optical transceivers.
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
