Belgian telecommunications operator, Proximus has chosen the Viavi ONMSi optical network monitoring system to test and monitor its growing fibre to the home (FTTH) network at the build-out stage, in order to help maintain reliability.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) and Proximus S.A. have reached an agreement on a €400 million loan granted to the Belgian service provider to further roll-out and upgrade its fixed broadband infrastructure in Belgium, predominantly to help accelerate deployment of a Gigabit network of the future, bringing fibre to 85 per cent of businesses and to the centres of cities and communities in Belgium.
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
