About the event

It’s a very exciting time for Optical networks being positioned at the forefront of the data explosion being created by 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and the Gigabit connected cities. Investment in optical is key as it continues to underpin this rapid growth in services and applications keeping communities connected and on the move. NGON addresses and mirrors this optical innovation and drive towards Terabit transmission with a smarter and more flexible exhibition and conference. The conference includes all the key areas of growth for the optical networking industry, covering these 4 key optical market areas:

- Optical Data Centre Interconnect- Transport SDN- Photonic Integration- Optical as Enabler for Gigabit Cities & IoT

Maintaining our work and relationships throughout the year with key associations, thought leaders and stakeholders in the optical industry who are striving to build smarter, faster and more flexible optical networks, the event continues to deliver those working in the optical industry the information, connections, contacts, differentiation and tools to deliver the capacity and agility required for a Web-Scaled Gigabit World. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the optical evolution!

Co-Located with Optical DCI

Global adoption of the Internet is driving rapid growth of the mega data centre. Data centres support online commerce, streaming video, social networking, and cloud services. The vendors in the optical transceivers industry have to invest in high-quality technology and processes. The development of innovative DCI, security, photonic integration products will be essential to keeping and growing their market share. We speak with the optical community throughout the year and from our conversations with key associations, thought leaders and stakeholders, the overwhelming feedback we have received has led us to create the Optical Data Centre Interconnect conference co-located at NGON Nice.

The conference investigates in depth what are market drivers and technology needs are from Optical DCI, looks at the cost modelling and the creation of new business models, discusses how mega data centres are driving the market, demonstrates how inter DCI connectivity will support applications and services, shows how intra DCI will increase the capacity with photonic integration and silicon photonics and looks how Optical DCI may evolve. Don’t miss this opportunity to get involved and be part of the Optical DCI journey.
