With the need to constantly increase bandwidth, many telecommunications operators are moving from 10G to 100G on DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) networks. The shift towards 100G and B100G brings new opportunities—but also challenges during deployment and service activation. This webinar will discuss what sets 100G apart, with a focus on test and measurement for the optical layer. Topics such as fiber characterization, handling new impairments in coherent systems, challenges in mixed 10G/100G systems, and what’s next will also be discussed.
