The ECOC Exhibition
is one of the largest optical communications events in the world. It is the meeting place for all those involved in the fibreoptic communications industry, so if you are a manufacturer, supplier or service provider in this field, you can’t miss ECOC 2012. Held from the 17th-19th September at the Amsterdam RAI, the event offers many new and exciting features and events that you could be part of.
Optical Connections, Market Focus
Walking the show floor among the 350 exhibitors, one area not to be missed is the Optical Connections Market Focus, sponsored by Opnext. Now in its seventh year, the Market Focus sessions boast over 950 industry executives taking part and an even broader selection of informative and on-trend optical communications topics planned for discussion, with the 2012 schedule set to be the largest to date. Past presenters include Google, JDSU, Openxt, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks, Huawei, Deutsche Telekom and many more.
The content for the sessions is overseen by a panel of highly-respected industry experts that also make up the ECOC Advisory Committee and are the decision-making force behind the presentations. Market issues to be discussed this year include: service provider optical transmission, future technology applications, optical network agility, optical integration and digital photonics, data centre and optical interconnect technologies, packet-optical transport, test and measurement and mass-market broadband fibre access.
Returning to the show this year is the FTTx centre, which is run in conjunction with CTTS training and sponsored by Anritsu, FTTH Council Europe, ITW Chemtronics, Prysmian Group and Sticklers® by MicroCare Corp. The centre will have 11 specialist zones, featuring cutting edge technologies and live interactive engineering demonstrations, including fibre optic network delivery methods and OSP and ISP for FTTx vendor independent products.
CTTS technical experts will be on hand giving product explanations and holding free training sessions.
Once again the camera crews of ECOC TV will tour the exhibition floor and market focus areas inviting views, news and opinions from the exhibitors and visitors alike − so don’t be scared to get in front of the camera and promote your company and industry news and views!
This year will also see the introduction of a giant Twitter wall at the show’s entrance, where exhibitors and visitors will be able to keep their followers up to date on the latest event news, gossip and highlights.
