Cisco Optics Podcast Episode 23. How one can Make Coherent Optics Small and Pluggable, with Tom Williams. Half 4 of 5.
Coherent optics have been the go-to resolution for high-end optical transport methods for years. Ultimately, these optics had been modularized and with current advances in DSP design and optics manufacturing, this expertise is now obtainable in small type issue pluggable modules.
