600 professionals from the telecoms optical ecosystem gathered at WDM & Next Generation Optical Networking 2012 and the buzz was all about the 100G Optical Reboot, and looking beyond 100G. A year forward, traffic volumes are still increasing at huge rates (estimates are that worldwide IP traffic will reach an annual run rate of 1.3 zettabytes by the end of 2016) and speed is a factor for all service providers today: the speed of the network and the speed with which new services can be brought to market.
The discussion in 2013 focuses on the massive technical challenges the industry faces to deliver higher speeds – 400G & 1T – making sure networks are fast enough to handle the current and anticipated traffic demands. The rate of growth has placed service providers in a cost‐capacity crunch with the investments in network upgrades and new builds having a high price tag, with disproportionate revenues returned. To ensure their networks can scale to meet the bandwidth demand, service providers are looking to monetise them and to adopt the most efficient, flexible and cost-effective means of transporting traffic. To achieve an optimal & economical next generation optical network fit for purpose, the leading international service providers (network operators, data centre, internet exchanges, education & public), solution providers and analysts debate, discuss, demo during a packed 4 days.
