The FCC gets set to roll back the clock, carriers appear ready to roll forward with more NFV, 50G designs are about to get rolling (if they haven't already) and submarine networks roll with the changes in this week's Friday 5. Sponsored by Anritsu.
Our special WDM themed edition of the Friday 5 wasn't planned -- that's just the way the week went. Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy also discusses Acacia's production issues as well as yet another hopeful sign for 400G deployments.
Lightwave Editorial Director Stephen Hardy opens up about a new conference, cable operator and fiber-optic network service provider consolidation, and submarine network construction. And he exults in the newest optical transceiver MSA.
