“We were overwhelmed by the success of last year’s Market Focus, which attracted more than three thousand visitors,” said Beverley Lucas, event director at Nexus Media Events. “The different tracks provide a platform for industry professionals to gain knowledge of and insights into the advancements made on the latest trends in the industry, including the biggest areas of growth such as 5G and the Internet of Things. We’re sure the addition of the New Markets track will also prove popular, reflecting the rapidly changing nature of the industry and giving a real sense of what’s yet to come.”

The full list of topics for Market Focus are: service and content provider optical transmission, optical network agility / software-defined networks, datacenters: optics in cloud computing, new markets, photonics integration and digital silicon photonics, and fiber access.

The topics have been decided by the Market Focus Committee, which includes global representatives from across the industry including independent industry bodies, telecom operators, analyst groups, system vendors, and component manufacturers.

In addition to Market Focus, which is sponsored by Inphi Corporation, the 2018 FTTx Village will host a variety of innovative and cutting-edge demonstrations of the very latest technologies in fiber optic communications, with interactive fiber optic network delivery methods being showcased live from the event.

“As the leading European based event for the optical communications industry, ECOC really is the place to be for the latest fiber developments and demonstrations,” added Lucas. (Source: ECOC)
