With bandwidth demand growing continuously, optical communications must assume an even more central role in carrier, enterprise, and data center networks alike. Yet merely addressing capacity requirements isn’t enough to meet the needs of the network manager. Optical technology must become less expensive, less power hungry, more efficient, more flexible, and more economical to deploy. That means innovation in fiber optics – and in the electronics that support optical transmission – is more important than ever.
To explore where this innovation is needed, what it must look like, and when we might see it, Lightwave has created the Lightwave Optical Innovation Summit, which will take place this July 14-16 in Austin, TX.
