This advanced course is designed to enable you to assess clearly the latest developments in optical networking technology, that enable data rates of 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s and beyond in core networks, so that you can evaluate how and when they might be used within the networks that you design, plan and operate. You will learn about the role of coherent detection and polarisation multiplexing, along with Flexgrid and next-generation CDC ROADMs.
