CableLabs specifications bring higher speeds to access networks

CableLabs has published two new specifications to ‘dramatically increase’ capacity of the fibre access network with point-to-point coherent optics technology, allowing for 100Gb/s per wavelength.

Using amplitude, phase, and polarisation to enable much higher fibre capacities, coherent optics can help to improve streaming, video conferencing, file uploads and downloads and future usage needs for technologies such as virtual and augmented reality, and by gaining more capacity from existing fibres, the need to lay more can be eliminated.
