Why Attend?

intro img

The Next Generation Optical Networking (NGON) event is a worldwide conference and exhibition at the forefront of optical networking industry development. It is the perfect opportunity to network with your peers and make valuable connections. The conference will be held in Nice from the 26th to the 28th of June, 2018, and will mark its 20th anniversary. 750+ professionals from the entire optical networking ecosystem – from service providers, data center operators to system vendors and component vendors – will be participating this event.

Before the conference, the 5th Huawei Optical Innovation Forum will be also held in Nice on the 25th of June. This forum is hosted by Huawei and we will present our ideas about current technology deployments 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: high-performance 200G/400G transmission, network intelligence and automation, next-generation OTN, 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 such challenges.

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