Cable Service Providers: Fiber optic network & communications for cable MSOs: Lightwave

CABLE/MSO

As cable-TV service providers have evolved to multiple systems operators (MSOs), they now rely on fiber optics to deliver broadband voice, video, and data services. Cable MSOs have increasingly embraced FTTH, whether PON, Active Ethernet, or RF over glass (RFoG). Cable MSO long-haul links incorporate DWDM and now ROADM systems as well.

But presentations and announcements at last month’s ECOC in Cannes, France, indicate the technology will play on the line side as well. For example, Acacia Communications used the show to further publicize its use of sili...
