Dr. Jan Watté (CommScope) gives guest lecture about "An industrial perspective on optical telecom" in Optical Communication Systems class

March 25, 2016 at 15:24

During his 3-hour lecture, Dr. Watté gave a detailed view on passive optical network (PON) fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployment, and the network elements required for such a deployment. In particular, he focused on the state-of-the-art of fiber connectivity and the innovation and development of novel fiber-optic products in industry. 
B-PHOT and Commscope have a long track record in collaborative research on the development of innovative fiber connectivity solutions, both in regional funded projects and in European projects (i.e. the FP7 project VECTOR, www.vectorfp7.eu). This long-standing collaboration recently resulted in the establishment of a VUB - Commscope chair (http://www.vub.ac.be/en/chair/te-connectivity).
