Over the years we have developed a series of sessions and free-to-attend features that are designed to enhance your ECOC experience.
Covering everything from datacentres, photonics integrations and digital silicon photonics to fibre access, service and content provide optical transmission, Market Focus, sponsored by Inphi, showcases the very latest news and developments from leading organisations within the fibre optics community.
The hot topics for Market Focus 2019 will be announced in April when we launch our Call For Speakers. If you are interested in getting involved in Market Focus next year and would like to be notified when we open for speaker submissions simply contact email@example.com or submit your information over on our Market Focus presentations page.
A mixture of practical, hands-on sessions and expert advice, the Training Zone gives you the chance to cover some of the key techniques of fibre optic testing and fusion splicing. Run in conjunction with CTTS, our expert training team bring their years of industry experience to ECOC to share their knowledge.
Small group sizes, with a maximum of 12 attendees per session, mean you get more one to one support, so you can ask questions and get advice and take away new skills that you can put to use back at your workplace.
In 2018 the ever-popular Training Zone was once again full to capacity, with a fully-booked session on passive optical networking and fibre splicing proving the importance training will play in the mass deployment of fibre.
Modern fusion splicing techniques using hand held fusion splicers
Learn the fundamentals and make comparisons of the operation of these new machines
Passive Optical Network testing using PON optimised OTDRs
Discover how to test these demanding networks, how to configure the test equipment, understand the various stages of testing and test points
Passive Optical Network Testing using Bidirectional Smart Testers
Find out how to use Bidirectional Smart Testers for PON testing
Fibre Optic Testing workshop covering acceptance to commissioning testing
Learn the basics of fibre optic cable acceptance, post installation testing and the commissioning of optical fibres at operational wavelengths.
The FTTx Centre, created in association with CTTS Training, brings together the very latest fibre to the ‘x’ in eleven dedicated zones each focusing on a specific area of fibre, showcasing a range of products in specially-designed feature area within the exhibition hall.
Live demonstrations will also take place within the FTTx Centre including Air Blown Fibre Technology and Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Network (GEPON), fibre blowing, microduct calibration and testing, fibre splicing and activation testing, as well as explanation and demonstration of key ISP and OSP equipment deployed in the modern FTTH networks.
Exhibiting at ECOC 2019? You can display your products within the FTTx Centre free of charge. Find full details within our Sponsorship and Promotional Opportunities section.

Plan your time in advance
We know your time in the exhibition is important – with sessions to attend and exhibitors to meet, it can be difficult to keep track of what is on when! Our Daily Planner helps you create your own plan for each day of the event, add the Market Focus sessions, training or demonstrations you want to see along with a shortlist of exhibitors you want to visit, then simply input your email to receive your personal plan – or add to your calendar. Market Focus sessions will be added as soon as the timetable is announced in June.
