Senko (booths 2584, 2811) will show its new range of Micro LC connectors. The simple bayonet mechanism on the Micro LC connector eliminates the need for finger access to the latch mechanism, allowing connectors to be mounted much closer together than before. Attendees will have the opportunity to see how Senko’s unique design of Micro LC connector is ideal for behind-the-wall applications, plug-and-play modules, and on-board optics, where space saving is important. Using a conventional LC ferrule with spring-loaded design, the Micro LC connector also mates with standard LC connectors.
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
