With an increasing amount of fibre being deployed worldwide, in this issue we look at how to make money from it. In a recap of Optical Connections’ recent webinar on the subject, some of the industry’s top experts share their thoughts. In other features, OC regular Antony Savvas casts an eye over the latest developments in Coherent Pluggables and John Williamson takes stock of the latest developments in Co-Packaged Optics.
On the subject of bringing technologies together, Nokia’s Serge Melle examines the possibilities brought about with IP-Optical Integration. Elsewhere, Infinera’s Paul Momtahan nominates his top five DWDM line system innovations and how they’ve evolved, while MicroCare’s Liam Taylor takes a practical approach to combatting the evils of static damage to fibres. In addition, this issue’s EPIC CEO Interview is with Niek Rijnveld, at Optics 11. Niek’s story is fascinating and full of advice for others looking to find an application for niche technologies.
All this plus our usual look at some of the latest and innovative products means this issue is a must read.
