This summit will provide the most recent updates and trends on open technologies, architectures and interfaces in Optical Networking. The event will be divided in two parts.
In the first part, invited speakers will give their views on network disaggregation and how it is driving the design of new devices and technologies such as open optical and packet/optical transponders (e.g., Phoenix, Cassini, etc.), open source network operating system, and open planning tools. The speakers will also report on the progress in initiatives such as OpenRoadm, Telecom Infra Project, OpenConfig, and ONF. Finally, relevant room will be devoted to network deployments, covering both access and metro/inter-DC real-world implementations.
In the second part, a panel discussion will enable Operators and Vendors to debate on deployment strategies, challenges in open networking as well as to discuss the expected trends towards fully converged open packet-optical networks.
