Mobile optical pluggables (MOPA) – solutions, technologies and standardization of optics for 5G

11 November 2021, 15:00 - 16:30 - Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC - 05:00)

This talk will outline the recent work by 5 leading companies (Ericsson, Nokia, Sumitomo, Lumentum, II-VI) in the initiative called mobile optical pluggables (MOPA). The MOPA initiative has produced a 55-page technical paper outlining all relevant optical solutions for 5G networks. These solutions, called optical blueprints, cover all parts of the 5G network: the low-layer split (aka fronthual), high-layer split, and backhaul, for all relevant distances (2-80 km), and technologies (grey optics, WDM optics, packet multiplexing, PON). Finally, an outlook into future needs and technologies will be made.
