How well do you know Coherent Optics?
Simplicity, efficiency and operational flexibility are no longer nice-to-haves. They’re competitive requirements. But how much more can we do with light? It’s fixed. It goes on, it goes off. End of story. Right?
Not so fast. Coherent Optics takes the typical ones and zeroes—the blinking on and off of the light, if you will—and uses very sophisticated technology to modulate the amplitude and phase of the light, which imparts considerably more information onto the light speeding through a fiber optic cable. Instead of something that simply turns on or off, coherent optics include an intelligent receiver that can tune to any frequency. The result is drastically increased capacity and performance.
