Wow! OFC is going to be another really great event this year. If you’re like me, you already have a busy schedule planned, there are just so many great speakers, sessions, and workshops available to choose from – including some excellent sessions and topics featuring Cisco’s own Bill Gartner, Ron Johnson, Walid Wakim and Carl Moberg.

Make Sure You Stop by and See Us at Booth #1501

Although it may be hard to find the time to break away and visit the exhibit hall, I really encourage you to do so. We’ll be demoing some cool technologies including our QSFP-DD pluggable transceiver form factor for 400G applications, and our Optical Multi-Tenant technology, which can be used to embed and manage Optical VPNs, instantiate and delete optical circuits, and leverages the restoration capabilities of GMPLS to provide OVPN-specific restoration of optical connections. And we’ll also be showcasing some of our industry-leading optical network solutions that can help you to simplify the network and make it more agile; make more money faster, and cut both cost and complexity when deploying new services.

Our theme for this year’s event is “There’s Never Been a Better Time to Transform Your Network,” and we’ll show you exactly how you can do that using our open network architecture in conjunction with our Transport Network Modernization, Central Office Transformation, and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) solutions.
