LEADING CONTENT

OPTICAL MASTERCLASS SERIES

New for 2018, we introduced our exclusive series of workshops, when our partners including the OIF provided premium insights and content via innovative platforms.

CASE STUDY PANELS

New for 2018! Stakeholders within a particular project addressed the challenges they face and demonstrated how they mitigated and overcame these to achieve their goals.

INTERACTIVE AGENDA

Panel discussions and sessions covering an array of pressing topics, were given by industry leaders within the NGON and DCI space.

The Optical Masterclass Series

Light Reading Breakfast Workshop

Making Sense of Optical Transport Options for 5G. This breakfast workshop explored the range of 5G xhaul transport options with the goal of mapping each to the specific requirements of the 5G RAN and anticipated applications.

The OIF Workshop

You learned how OIF is assuring interoperability in open, agile next generation optical networks, with updates from OIF experts and guests on critical projects including CEI-56G and CEI-112G, FlexE, 400ZR, and Transport SDN.

SM-Optics Workshop

This workshop targeted the new optical micro nodes market segment and its adoption for 5G ready network, as well as fix/business applications, and how to address the expected 10 fold capacity growth with a fraction of the costs.

To 400G and Beyond


The 400G era has arrived, allowing network operators to squeeze yet more bits from of their network assets.

Network operators know it all too well; streaming video, cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the evolution to 5G are all putting massive pressure on today’s networks, requiring capacity increases by orders of magnitude and the ability to respond to even greater unpredictability in traffic patterns.
