The last time England played the World Cup semi-finals was 28 years ago. When the footballers hoisted up the trophy and brought it home was way back in 1966, right around the time four fab lads from Liverpool were about to invade America.
Huawei, , 7/2/2018
Huawei's optical networks have gone through three generations, from 2.5Gbit/s and 10Gbit/s to 40Gbit/s, before finally achieving good market share in 2008. However, they still have a higher goal: In the era of 100Gbit/s and beyond, Huawei will provide customers with industry-leading solutions.

We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:

  1. Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
  2. 5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
  3. Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
  4. FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
  5. Security- preventing fiber tapping and data theft
