Ethernet & SDN Expo will focus on how the convergence of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and emerging carrier software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV) technologies will accelerate the ability of operators to develop and deliver more scalable, dynamic, and customized services and applications more rapidly, over much more efficient networks. It is co-locating with Interop New York.
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
