New Machine Learning Approach Could Give a Big Boost to the Efficiency of Optical Networks

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/OSA?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#OSAlt;/agt;–New work leveraging machine learning could increase the efficiency of optical telecommunications networks. As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, fiber optic cables offer the ability to transmit more data over longer distances compared to traditional copper wires. Optical Transport Networks (OTNs) have emerged as a solution for packaging data in fiber optic cables, and improvements look to make them more cost-effective. A group of researchers from Universi
