Highlighting Hotspots and Trends of Communications Market in 2017

5G, IoT and data center have drawn more attention in the industry since the beginning of 2017. Key words relevant to these areas are extensively searched and related news headlines can be found all over the web, for example 5G Network Capacity is Expanding, Investments in 5G and IoT are Gaining Momentum, Data Center Becomes a New Growth Area for Optical Communications. CIOE will present perspectives and insights on the latest development and trends in the industry.

5G Era Driving Evolution of Optical Network

To explore the impact 5G has on the optical communications industry, CIOE works with China Mobile to launch China Mobile – 5G Optical Network Development Summit. The forum will be held in the Rose Hall-3 of Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center in the afternoon of September 6. Top notch players such as ZTE, Huawei, Broadcom and CAICT will gather to discuss key issues of 5G era with brand-new mindsets and from higher perspectives. Major topics include challenges faced by optical transport network (OTN); how OTN evolves to meet needs of 5G network and services including 5G wireless front haul, back haul and network structure; technology trend, application scenarios and costs of optical network and optical modules; how optical technology solves challenges such as ultra-high bandwidth, short delay, precision sync, SDN/NFV, network slicing, low cost, low consumption; and how to make the right roadmap for technology evolution.
