The Telecommunication Networks Engineering Group of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena is pleased to announce the 20th International Conference on Optical Network Design and Modeling (ONDM 2016) which will be kindly hosted at the School of Telecommunications, Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, Cartagena, Spain, May 9-12, 2016. ONDM 2016 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE and the IEEE Communication Society.

The scope of the conference is concentrated on cutting-edge research in established areas such as optical networking, optical systems, as well as emerging topics like novel Internet architectures, new optical network architectures for the Cloud/DataCenter, wireless optical networks, photonic integrated networks and SDN-NFV developments in optical networks.

ONDM 2016 will also include a short workshop on integration of Big Data and Optical Networking.

As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance

Feature

Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move

Feature

Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby

Feature

With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
