WDM-PON Technology and it's Applications in Metro and Access Optical Networks
Date: 6 October 2014, Time: 14.00-17.00
Please note: the WDM-PON workshop starts today at 14.00, registered attendees can pick up their badge onsite 13.00 onwards.
Join the WDM-PON Forum for this 3 hour workshop and learn more about the latest advances in WDM-PON technology and it’s applications in metro and access optical networks. WDM-PON is rapidly maturing as a technology with a number of solutions becoming available from the vendor community and early adopter deployments taking place in operators’ networks. This workshop will bring together industry experts from the component and system vendor communities plus experts from the network operator community who are evaluating or deploying WDM-PON networks. The workshop is structured around two panel discussions that will address the advances within the industry and within network deployments. Please join us for a lively discussion and debate.
The event is FREE-to-attend for Carriers, click here to register.
This event is really instructive and the presentations are really thorough. The number and quality of attendees offer you great opportunities to make new key acquaintances. If your business involves using DWDM; you MUST be there!CD, SNCF
This is my third year and I’ve watched it grow –I’m amazed at how many people are showing up...it’s not just about Carriers and suppliers, it’s about the ecosystem of the supply base into the Carrier community. [With the inclusion of Telco Components World] you now start to have a story that is not just about ‘what I want’, but how do I implement it, and what are the technical issues, cost issues and hurdles that I have to deal with. It allows for a better conversation for all the stakeholders, to allow consensus-building to happen.JD, Ethernet Alliance
Best intimate place to talk to clients and partners. All the presentations were useful and helpful to track market trendsEG, ACG Research
I personally found the show very worthwhile and it was one of the better industry events I had attended in awhile. I found it to be a little more informal and open than other events and as a result I was able to takeaway valuable info about the market and the problems our customers need to have solvedMT, Tellabs
I genuinely think the event has become the de facto optical event in Europe (and further afield, given the number of customers from APAC and CALA). There has been lots of really good customer engagementMK, Ciena
The 2012 event proved that IIR WDM is the go-to event for the transport industry in EMEAKD, ALU
The conference has been great – everyone has a different take on the advantages and disadvantages, which gives a unique perspectiveMB, Finisar
It’s been a great conference, and just the right size; you get to meet and talk to everybody, without getting lost in the crowd like you do at some of the bigger showsGB, Verizon
"The trend in North America, carriers cutting spending year over year but allocating towards forward-looking technology investments like WDM equipment and ROADMs."Infonetics
I’m delighted with the conference, 80+ different service providers from 50+ countries is a fantastic group for us to be able to network withBG, Cisco
