Identify and justify the business case for fibre and NGA networks and learn how to cost-effectively design and deploy a profitable network that delivers the best ROI. As operators across Africa continue on their path to delivering superfast broadband, the issue of fibre and NGA networks increasingly hots up across the continent. The only event in the African market dedicated to exploring the key challenges of rolling out fibre networks, FTTx Summit Africa returns for its 2nd year to once again unite leaders in the field in a unique forum for debate and discussion.
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
