Event organiser: 

Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (SSSA)


The 19th edition of the Optical Networks Design and Modelling (ONDM) conference will be held at the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in Pisa, Italy, on 11-14 May 2015.

Along with the tradition of previous editions of this conference, ONDM 2015 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 and photonic integrated 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
