Following a successful workshop at OFC in March this year, ON2020 has spent the summer surveying the network needs and evolution strategies of leading network operators and is ready to share the results during a focused session at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden. This will be a unique opportunity to better understand the long-term requirements for optical networking beyond 2020.
The results of the ON2020 survey will be shared at a read-out session led by members of the ON2020 steering committee immediately after the opening Plenary session. The ON2020 steering committee includes Simon Poole (Finisar), Xiang Liu (Huawei), Dogan Atlas (Infinera), Brandon Collings (Lumentum) and Peter Winzer (Nokia Bell Labs). There will be opportunity during this session to discuss key aspects of feedback received from network operators.
Please join ON2020 for what should prove to be a highly informative session on Monday, September 18, at the Svenska Massan in Gothenburg — the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre — in Room R31, from 12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m. The session is open to all ECOC attendees; however, space is limited, so please reserve your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org along with your own response to the ON2020 survey. More information on the session and a link to the survey is available at Information-Sharing Meeting at ECOC 2017.
