Event Review

4th Optical Interconnect in Data Centers Symposium

The 4. Optical Interconnect in Data Centers Symposium was another popular highlight of the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC). The event focused on powerful, economical, and energy-efficient optical interconnects across data center hierarchies, with particular emphasis on on-board, board-to-board, and rack-to-rack technologies. High profile speakers from Facebook, IBM, Huawei, Furukawa, UCL and others addressed over 150 visi-tors from around the world in four separate sessions. A separate roundtable discussion invit-ed the attendees to share their experiences, and the team around Tolga Tekin was available for visitors to the PhoxTroT booth.
