Optelian Talks Metro P-OTS 2.O at ESDN
MARIETTA, Ga. -- Intuitive Packet Optical Networking solution provider, Optelian, announces that Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Sheldon Walklin, will serve on an expert panel entitled “Reducing Costs and Generating New Revenue with Metro P-OTS 2.0” on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 11:30am to 12:20pm at Light Reading’s Ethernet & SDN Expo 2013. The event will take place Oct. 2 and 3 in New York City.
Since their debut in 2007, metro packet-optical transport systems have been a major growth engine for optical suppliers. During the past two years, the packet functionality in P-OTS has risen in prominence. Not only is the industry seeing true hybrid functionality (of packet and SONET/SDH), but there have also been P-OTS deployments in packet-only mode. At the same time, the deployment of DWDM optics in P-OTS has increased steadily, as fiber has moved deeper and deeper into metro networks. In the Reducing Costs and Generating New Revenue with Metro P-OTS 2.0 session, panelists will explore the key packet and optics functions and characteristics of “Metro P-OTS 2.0,” and how these next-generation systems are enabling service providers to reduce costs per bit as well as differentiate and generate new revenue streams.
