I've got a number of events coming up, including the short course on data center cabling I'll be teaching at OFC/NFOEC. Also wanted to let you know about The Optical Business Forum I've been working on for OFC, which will incorporate many of the data center technologies I've written about here.
This year's Optical Business Forum will be the first in what we’re hoping will be a yearly affair covering the most important topics in the area of optical transport for business communications. This year’s summit will be held right on the exhibit floor and consists of a keynote address on High-Bandwidth Ethernet Services by Rajiv Datta, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of AboveNet Inc. Following the keynote are three focused sessions:
- Who is Buying Optical Bandwidth Services?
- The Economics & Business Case for Connecting Data Centers
- Carrier Ethernet Exchanges
Join us at OFC/NFOEC and hear what you’re customers’ customers are saying.
