Huawei is honored to invite you to the 21st NGON event and 6th Huawei Optical Innovation Forum, held from May 20th to May 23rd 2019, in Nice, France.

NGON event has been a key fixture on the ecosystem’s calendar for more than 20 years and has evolved in line with developments in mobile and fixed connectivity. 5G is poised to dramatically increase the use of fiber optics across parts of the network, and so in the run up to deploying next generation mobile connectivity, fixed infrastructure is more important than ever.


The 21st NGON event will bring together operators from across the globe, as well as data center and solution providers, for three days of cutting edge innovations and stimulating networking, to ensure that you will be ready for the next disruptive force. It is the only event that brings together all the key players in optical networking, 750+ professionals from the entire optical networking ecosystem – from telco operators, data center operators to system vendors and component vendors. It is a great opportunity to hear important updates and make the key connections you need to be at the forefront of 5G delivery. By getting in touch with us at the event, we can discuss how to best support your efforts and help you get ahead of the competition.

Preceding the event, the 6th Huawei Optical Innovation Forum will be also held in Nice, France. This forum is hosted by Huawei and we will present our ideas about the latest optical technology and future network evolution, exhibit innovative products and solutions, and share our vision on the future of the optical network industry. It will cover the hottest topics in the industry: Optical networking 2.0, 5G evolution, network intelligence and automation, innovation in optical networks, and more.

As the principal sponsors of the NGON event and the host of the Optical Innovation Forum, Huawei would like to cordially invite you and your team to attend these two events. The events will provide an opportunity to align with industry experts, discuss the challenges faced by the industry, and explore solutions to address these challenges.

We value your participation at these events and look forward to meeting you and your team in Nice.
