NGON Event 2023 Highlights Market Insights Customised Experiences Solution Providers

NGON at Network X

Head to the co-located Next-Generation Optical Networks (NGON) event to listen the latest from major industry vendors, telcos and non-profits on the impact of AI on the transport network, the business benefits of upgrading to 800G, the latest on subsea cables and how emerging technologies such as quantum can have an impact!

Address the industry's pressing questions through a series of keynote sessions, panel discussions and fireside chats:

How can the optical core network support the growth of digital economy business models and applications?
How is the high-capacity service growth from 5G and passive optical network (PON) deployments being supported by the optical transport network (OTN)?
How will PON integrate with the transport network?
How can telcos navigate the demands on the optical core as networks transition to 400G and beyond?
How are emerging technologies such as AI and Quantum supporting OTN performance?

Market Insights

How can telcos build a transport network that meets the consumer and enterprise requirements of the future?

If telcos are going to meet the pressures of today’s connectivity demands – optical transport will be a critical element in the telecoms industry’s future growth strategy. 

Optical transport not only underpins the entire digital economy – it is also the backbone of fixed networks and supports mobile network traffic. This year at Network X, for the first time ever, we will be including a dedicated spotlight on the growing optical transport market within the event. To achieve this, we are bringing the well-established specialist event in this field, NGON, to Network X. We’ll also be premiering dedicated partner events from key industry stakeholders on this topic.
