By Cary Snyder, Principal Analyst at EJL Wireless Research USA, and Consulting Engineer at Sarokal Test Systems Oy, Finland | Posted: 25 March 2015

Anyone attending OFC 2015 knows there is a LOT of material and not everything may apply to their respective interest or work product. However, it is hard to ignore the importance of optics and the role it plays in both the current Mobile Fronthaul/Backhaul Transport and more importantly Next-Generation Mobile Fronthaul for 4.5G (2020) and 5G (2025).

Metro 100G and Beyond

By OFC | Posted: 24 March 2015

The explosion of digital video, cloud access and data center traffic is driving the growth of 100 Gb/s fiber optic networks, or 100G, in metro environments.

Enabling the Cloud Using Optics

By Casimer DeCusatis, Ph.D. | Posted: 24 March 2015

As the OFC conference gets into full swing, I decided to spend some time looking at the clouds.  Not the fluffy white ones outside the Los Angeles Convention Center, of course, but the symposium on enabling the cloud that attracts leading cloud, internet, and telecom service providers. It seems that everyone is interested in cloud computing, and most experts agree that the multi-billion dollar cloud market will continue its double digit growth rates throughout 2015. So it’s hardly a surprise that OFC attendees want to understand how to enable the cloud through optical networking and related technologies.
