The future of open optical communications, network operators and technology developers take their stance

Bringing together the optical communications industry to drive towards a more commonly accepted definition of “open” as well as create strategies to fulfill this definition. Attend this special one-day conference to engage with cutting-edge information on the latest technologies and topics involving open optical network design.

While “closed” systems bounded by proprietary limitations have traditionally been the only option for fiber-optic networks, a growing number of network operators have begun to request “open” optical systems that they believe will improve the flexibility and performance of their networks. Such requests have come from the traditional service provider realm and the emerging data center applications space alike.

This potential change in systems requirements has put pressure on technology developers to please their customers and potentially change their business models.

Our keynoter Jeff Brown of will discuss Windstream’s fiber network, touching on why having open systems in a multivendor environment is important to success, the benefits the implementation offers, as well as the challenges.
