ONDM 2017: Optical Network Design and Modelling

15 May 2017 to 18 May 2017
Budapest, Hungary

Following the tradition of previous editions of the conference, ONDM 2017 will address 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/data centre, wireless optical networks, photonic integrated networks and SDN/NFV developments in optical networks.

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


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


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


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
