CONA is an extensive five-day course in which attendees learn the fundamentals of optical networking, including the transmission of light through optical fiber and widely deployed commercial systems. Trainees will learn how to design and plan efficient and cost effective high-speed optical point-to-point links and networks that meet today’s and future requirements.
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
