Jim Zou talks open optical edge connectivity for mobile access networks

ECOC workshop session to explore optical solutions to accelerate cost-effective 5G deployment

  • Speaker: Jim Zou, senior manager, global business development, ADVA
  • Topics: Open optical edge connecting mobile access networks  
  • When: Sunday, September 18, 3:40 p.m. CEST
  • Where: NGO ECOC Exhibition 2022, Messe Basel, Basel, Switzerland:

Generic optics, developed for applications different from RANs, may not fit the requirements of the mobile transport network. Optical components natively conceived for radio access and based on technologies driven by its requirements (right optics at the right time and the right cost) would accelerate the pace at which RANs are deployed and decrease the relative cost of the optics as part of the total RAN solution.

In this session, Jim Zou will look at how emerging innovation is enhancing networking energy efficiency. While today’s solutions focus on high-end performance and end user experience, tomorrow’s infrastructure must also balance energy efficiency with varying traffic loads, and designs focused on sustainability. Register now for the event beginning September 18.
