High-Speed Fiber Cable Assemblies for the 5G Era

Active optical cables are key components in the high-speed systems needed to handle the exponential increase in data traffic that will come with 5G.  According to the figure being passed around at DesignCon 2020, only 15% of the 5G infrastructure has been installed so far. That means a tremendous number of transmitters, small cells, antennas, data centers, and devices will be needed — and millions of miles of cable, connecting continents, data centers, service providers, and users.
