This year’s agenda kicks off with an opening session on fibre access - with presentations from Ericsson, Source Photonics, FTTH Council Europe, Finisar and Hexatronic – followed by Huawei, Delta Group, EXFO and Lumentum speaking on optical network agility and packet optical transport in the afternoon.
 
Tuesday’s keynotes will centre on the role of the data centre, with keynotes from Microsoft, Ovum, Intel, Juniper Networks and Arista Networks in the morning session and Cignal AI, Acacia Communications, Molex, the Ethernet Alliance and Viavi Solutions post-lunch.
 
The final day will see Cisco, Inhpi and Huawei revisit network agility and access, with the Market Focus concluding on Wednesday afternoon with presentations on photonic integration and digital silicon photonics from Light Counting, Sicoya, II-VI Photonics, NeoPhotonics and Lightwave Logic.
 
The topics and speakers for this year’s Market Focus have been decided by the ECOC Exhibition Advisory Panel, which includes global representatives from across the optical communications space such as independent industry bodies, analyst groups, system vendors, telecom operators and component manufacturers.
