Global adoption of the Internet is driving rapid growth of the mega data centre. Data centres support online commerce, streaming video, social networking, and cloud services. The vendors in the optical transceivers industry have to invest in high-quality technology and processes. The development of innovative DCI, security, photonic integration products will be essential to keeping and growing their market share. We speak with the optical community throughout the year and from our conversations with key associations, thought leaders and stakeholders, the overwhelming feedback we have received has led us to create the Optical Data Centre Interconnect conference co-located at NGON Nice (and later in the year at NGON North America).
The conference will investigate in depth what are market drivers and technology needs are from Optical DCI, look at the cost modelling and the creation of new business models, discuss how mega data centres are driving the market, demonstrate how inter DCI connectivity will support applications and services, show how intra DCI will increase the capacity with photonic integration and silicon photonics and look how Optical DCI may evolve. 2016 is an exciting year for the Next Generation Optical Networking and Data Centre Interconnect market and don’t miss this opportunity to get involved and be part of the Optical DCI journey.
