Driving the future of open optical networking

Just when open optical networking seemed to have breached consensus, the industry has been hit with new technology, new platforms, and new players. How do we navigate this uncertain terrain to meet the needs of the service providers? What does the road map look like to a future of open systems? Find out at the second annual Open Optical Conference in the Telecom Corridor in Dallas on October 16.

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.
