Optical Trends in Metro/Access Networks

Monday, 07 June 18:00 – 18:30

Jabil: While the capacity for each optical channel is scaling up in long haul and core networks reaching the 800G per channel, we're seeing the trend to push coherent technology in the access part of the network as an alternative to direct detection techniques. This in an overall more open network architecture where “optical white boxes” are becoming a reality.

This presentation will discuss the commoditization of coherent modules going from long haul to edge applications and if the time has come to take optical white boxes a step further.
