Optical Networks

 Latest update: March 2022 

In recent years, research and the changes regarding digitalization and the utilization of information and communication technologies (ICT) has been substantial. With the advancements of mobile communication systems and the sharp increase of people’s use of the Internet due to government restrictions during the pandemic, the spread of 5G and the gradual digitalization of society are expected to take a bigger role in the upcoming years.
Optical communication technology and the telecommunications field are therefore an ongoing sector of interest for the domestic market.
