WEBINAR - Breaking the optical glass ceiling - The path to terabit optical networks

IHS Markit, Acacia, Fujitsu and Nokia / Registration coming soon


Successive rounds of optical innovation and investment have delivered higher capacity networks with significantly decreased cost-per-bit transmitted. Moving forward, as we approach Shannon’s limit, gains are becoming more incremental, and cost-per-bit of added capacity is becoming more linear. As an industry, will we be able to break through the optical glass ceiling to get to terabit optical networks? Can we do so while continuing to improve the economics? What will be the role of advanced fiber (few-mode, multicore, and coupled core fibers)? Will space-division multiplexing (SDM) move out of research and into commercial applications? Join this webinar to learn more about the different evolution vectors being explored on the path to terabit optical networks.
