Coherent optical communication for B5G and 6G fronthaul
25 August 2021
Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC - 05:00)
Coherent optical communication has made great progress in the past decade, enabling a large capacity increase for long-haul and metro optical networks. As the cost and power consumption of coherent transceiver continuously decreases, its application in mobile fronthaul network is receiving increasing attentions. This webinar will introduce various aspects of coherent technologies in the scenario of B5G and 6G fronthaul, including high speed modulation, energy-efficient implementation of digital signal processing, point-to-multipoint architecture, resource allocation, and so forth.
