ECOC to host record number of speakers

Next month’s ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communications) 2013 exhibition, will play host to the Market Focus theatre and see a record number of speakers from market-leading companies such as BT and ViaSat. The exhibition will be held on September 23 to 25 at the ICC London ExCeL.

Now in its eighth successful year the Market Focus, sponsored by Oclaro, will host 29 sessions over three days and be divided into five main topic areas – mass market broadband, high speed optical transmission, data centre networks, optical network agility and optical integration.

Companies and organisations set to speak at the Market Focus for the first time include Acreo Swedish ICT, ClariPHY, Ethernet Alliance, Acacia, ViaSat, Discerning Analytics, LLC, Avago, Juniper, Woodside Capital Partners and Coriant. The FTTH Council Europe, JDSU, Ovum and Molex are set to make a return.

'This year we wanted the Market Focus to attract a variety of speakers to reflect the growing spectrum of the optical communications industry,' said Beverley Lucas, group event manager for Nexus Business Media, organisers of the ECOC exhibition. 'We are thrilled to welcome back BT as an industry speaker and are excited to fit a whole lot more into the programme and announce a truly world class line-up of presentations.'
