THE ERA OF OPTICAL NETWORKING AS THE ENABLER FOR FUTURE SERVICES IS HERE
Next Generation Optical Networking North America has truly established itself as the go to conference for optical network discussions, debate and networking in North America
This year we are moving west to incorporate the launch of our Data Center Interconnect event, attracting a wider audience of DC Operators, Internet Service Providers, Internet Exchanges, Component and Silicon Photonic vendors and enterprises.
About the event
As the USA’s only dedicated Optical DCI event to bring senior decision makers together with the entire Optical Ecosystem we have put together a multi-stream, multi-format agenda led by end-user case studies. Incorporating topics such as:
- Metro & Longhaul Optical Network Needs
- Evolving towards 400G & 1TBITS
- Transport SDN & NFV
- Optical Intra and Inter Data Centre Interconnect Delivery for Web-Scale Connectivity
- Optical Access Technologies: 5G, Backhaul, Fronthaul & PON
- Component & Module DCI – Photonic integration afternoon focus with Beer & Pizza on offer
NGON in Numbers
