The world's leading optical networks event
Enable 5G and assert your digital dominance through the optical transport infrastructure
NGON & DCI World will encompass all our regional events to deliver a global meeting place for the brightest minds, thought leaders and industry innovators in the global optical networking and DCI ecosystem.
Disaggregation Strategies & Transport SDN
Free Webinar: Wednesday March 5, 3pm GMT
What’s the story? Improved network management deliverables are high on the priority list, including increased visibility of performance, failure rate reduction, lowering OPEX, and enhanced integration of software & hardware components. To reduce the disconnect between multiple components and to improve interoperability, enhanced disaggregation strategies & SDN toolsets are being implemented. However, questions still remain about the best blueprint to bring these methods and technologies together. In this webinar, we aim to answer those questions and ask our experts what we can look to expect from these strategies & technology applications in the optical ecosystem over the coming months. The discussion will include: Metro vs Long-Haul Architectural approach of network components Driving automation. Speakers will be announced shortly
