DCS Panel II: Open Line Systems - Can We Shape "Disaggregation" in One Direction?

Tuesday, 07 March, 14:15 – 15:45

Theater II

Session Description
When it comes to open line systems, there is a fracturing of approaches among different operators. Equally, the solutions offered on the market are very diverse, such as pluggable amplifieres, new OLS systems from traditional vendors, disaggregated line systems as well as contract manufacturers expanding into the buisness. 

With such a multitude of  solutions, can we shape disaggregation in one direction?
