Metro, Access and In-house Systems

The networks of the future have increasing requirements even over short distances, for example in data centers or to connect mobile phone base stations. To this end new optical technologies are being investigated which make it possible to access the possibilities inherent in new, broad band optical components (DML, VCSEL, EML) via advanced signal processing (OFDM, adaptive transfer, MIMO) for highest speed.
