Operators are deploying coherent 100G optical technology in their core networks to reap the benefits of higher capacity, longer reach, easier management and lower costs. Until recently, though, economical 100G technology did not exist for the metro, where space limitations require scalable, smaller-size and lower-power solutions. This webinar examines new technologies and approaches to cost-effectively deploying and testing 100G in metro applications, as well as 100G metro network rollout scenarios.
