OIDA Workshop on State of the Art Integrated Photonics
This workshop continues a series of OIDA workshops that reviews the state of the art in photonic integration in optical communications. It aims to address several questions: How does photonic integration address the emerging business needs of optical communications? What is the experience of deployment? What are the novel integration concepts and what are the key challenges in productization? Which forms of integration match specific applications within communications? What are some of the new and noteworthy products being commercialized today? The workshop will examine the commercialization of components and subsystems and their applications, as opposed to purely research achievements in photonic integration. The workshop will discuss applications across telecom and data center networks.

15 – 16 October 2013 at the Network Meeting Center in Silicon Valley’s TechMart

The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, unveiled details of the agenda for its upcoming 2013 Technology Exploration Forum (TEF 2013) scheduled for 15-16 October 2013 at the Network Meeting Center in Silicon Valley’s TechMart. At TEF 2013, “The Future of Ethernet”, Ethernet industry leaders, stakeholders, and industry visionaries like Ethernet inventor Robert (Bob) Metcalfe, will discuss Ethernet’s path forward. Pioneered by the Ethernet Alliance in order to help develop and facilitate Ethernet industry consensus, these events unite various stakeholders in discussions of the latest developments, new opportunities, and emerging challenges.

Participants serve as a de facto technology advisory board for the Ethernet community, and engage in a free-flowing dialog and exchange of ideas that help set the direction and drive industry activity.
