As we know, the demand for broadband services is on the rise and demand is not restricted to towns and cities. Folks living in rural locations need good-quality, high-speed services just as much as their urban cousins. For the majority of cases, especially greenfield sites with no existing infrastructure, Passive Optical Networks (PON) and Fiber-to-the-Home […]

Recent events have abruptly led to the mass-adoption of remote work, permanently changing the way we perceive our digital environments. As we adjust and adapt ourselves to home isolation, technology has become our sole space for community and collaboration. These disruptions have transformed the ways we look at civic, social, and professional engagement for good. […]

In anticipation of growth in the 3D imaging and sensing market, and to further enhance support of our Optical Security and Performance Products customers, VIAVI has completed construction of a new manufacturing plant and cleanroom facility in Henrietta, New York. The new plant replaces a facility formerly operated by RPC Photonics, which VIAVI acquired in […]

With the move to pluggable coherent optical modules for the first time since 10G, we see client and line side considerations coming together. The most obvious example of this is optical signal to noise (OSNR) and related measurements. For any modules with the potential for use in an amplified system, OSNR becomes the fundamental figure […]

With the advent of 400G Ethernet, it has become critically important to fully understand and validate Forward Error Correction (FEC) logic and the related software and firmware. 400G Ethernet uses PAM-4 signalling optically and electrically. Because of the susceptibility to the impact of noise, distortion, and other disturbances, most links will run with a raw error […]

In 2020, experts estimate that there are at least 31 billion IoT-connected devices worldwide. These devices rely on 5G connection to function properly and thus, perhaps now more than ever, there is a huge demand for 5G-ready telecom engineers and fiber contractors. In fact, research conducted by IHS Markit has predicted that by the year […]
