Pics From OFC: Blinded by the Light

LOS ANGELES -- OFC 2015 -- OFC, or the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition to give it its expanded name, is the annual get-together of the optical networking sector, with about 12,000 or so warm bodies descending on what was a very warm location this year -- downtown LA.

There were lots of interesting companies with chips, modules, components and systems developed for data centers and communications networks at the event, while there were hundreds of technical presentations in multiple conference streams.

Here's a taste of the topics that were being discussed at the event:

It's not the most pictorial of events, though. So while I had my camera, it wasn't used much. Here are the pictures that give you a sense of how lovely the weather was outside and how you couldn't tell how lovely it was outside when peering at a display of lasers on the show floor. Click on the picture below to start the short slide show.

Blinded by the Light
I got to the event early on day one and it was so bright I could hardly see the convention center. Within the next hour I was joined by about 10,000 others.

Ray, 

Unless Steve's virtual appearance at OFC was carefully prepared by the time someone from Cisco saw you walking down the isle that was an impressieve moment of synchronization, which doesn not have to go unnoticed, or ignored. :)

Year of 2017 will be the International Year of That Gassy Bloated Feeling.

That Juice Cleanse actually sounds appealing. I've become That Guy Who Puts Hot Sauce On Everything.
