FREMONT, CALIFORNIA – VeEX has been awarded Frost & Sullivan's 2017 Global Optical Time-domain Reflectometer (OTDR) New Product Innovation Award.
The company’s product innovation centred on the new OPX-BOXe, an ultra-compact, ‘black box’ OTDR designed to operate remotely using Fiberizer™ Mobile software or embedded web browser application. The product’s enhanced Bluetooth and WiFi connection capability, its Ethernet and USB wired remote control options, and its compatibility with iOS, Android, and Windows mobile devices were among some of the unique features recognised.
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
