Pluggable coherent optics offer advantages in many areas. One of the biggest factors is electronic dispersion compensation. For DCI, traditional ‘direct detect’ systems needed a detailed pre-planned link with dispersion compensation ‘engineered in’. This is both expensive and challenging to deploy. Scaling and maintaining are complicated. Electronic dispersion compensation inside the DSP of coherent modules […]

The deployment of the 5G network is a complex process. There are layers of complexity to it, each intertwined with the next, which makes it essential for service providers to understand the implications of every decision.   Here are four main challenges that network operators will need to overcome for a successful 5G deployment.   […]

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 […]

Fiber is being pushed deeper and deeper into access networks worldwide as service providers continue to address subscriber demands for higher capacity services. Going “fiber deep” could be part of G.fast deployments for telco operators or Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) upgrades for cable companies, but the next step (or end step) is full fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) […]
