OFC  Virtual Demo Zone

The OFC Demo Zone features demonstrations of research projects and proof-of-concept implementations in the space of optical communication devices, systems, and networks.

This year’s Demo Zone will be presented in an all-virtual format and follow the technical session style where each presenter will have 10 minutes to pitch their Demo, followed by Q& A. Following the live presentation, each presenter will provide a longer video displaying their Demo in action. In addition, each Demo video will have a dedicated page with a chat window for further engagement with the presenter.

The 2021 OFC Demo Zone covers topics ranging from SDN/NFV and software tools/functions to software and hardware aspects on all conference topics.
