Simply Illuminating: Considering the Future of Optical Transport


By Jayne MillerSep 27, 2022


Welcome back, podcast listeners. We're thrilled to dive into a new season of telecom tech talk.

First, you might have noticed that we look a little different than when we were last in your headphones. That's because we did a little old-fashioned rebranding while on summer break. What was once the WAN Manager Podcast is now TeleGeography Explains the Internet.

So what's actually different? Well, we’ll still be serving you the same brilliant WAN content, but we'll more broadly explore the global business of connectivity in each episode.

Whether you're looking for IP transit pricing trends, submarine cable news, satellite/5G developments, or anything about the business of moving bits around the world, tune in to stay up to speed.

We're already off and running. To kick off Season 4, we're going deep into the supply chain as intrepid host Greg Bryan welcomes Dr. Michael Lebby, CEO of Lightwave Logic.

The pair get into making a better mousetrap for the light-switching world. Listen up if you're into the technology that makes optical transport possible—and specifically how this technology fits into the telecom transport ecosystem.

Fasten your seatbelts. This conversation has new tech talk, optical transport pricing intel, a big Shannon Limit shout-out, and lots more.
