ECOC 2012: Day 1 Pictures

AMSTERDAM -- ECOC 2012 -- Two things are immediately apparent when you wander around the hundreds of exhibitor stands on the show floor here.

Oh -- that's a fiber spool that's in the FTTX picture.  I thought it was a wheel, and the silver "data centre" was some kind of FTTX contraption on wheels.

I don't even know what that would mean, which is why I gave the photo a second look.  :)


Also, that bright blue flooring is... is... something. Yes it is.
