Nokia: 5th-Gen Coherent Optics – Enabling 400G Services Everywhere

In this video we explore how 5th-generation coherent optics enable application-optimized scaling for metro to long-haul core networks.  Hear Simon Stanley from LightReading and Serge Melle from Nokia describe the range of 5th-generation coherent optics available today.  These include 400ZR/ZR+ pluggable optics for metro IP-optical applications, 400G Multihaul pluggable optics for metro-regional transport and router-based applications, and high-performance 90Gbaud super-coherent optics that enable the maximum capacity-reach performance in core, long-haul and subsea networks.  Finally, the video describes Nokia’s implementation of 5th-generation coherent optics across it optical transport product portfolio.
