OFC2016

世界上最大规模的光通讯交流展会。是一个以有着数据中心,自防御网络,硅光子学以及高速网络为特色的盛会!


美国光纤通讯展览会及研讨会(OFC)在今年的3月20-24在美国加州阿纳海姆会展中心举行,有着580家参展公司,发表论文已超过了1160篇,以及有着超过13000观众。一系列激动人心的展厅项目都着重突出了该行业对业内专家的需求,也体现了行业专家对保持该行业发展的重要性。一个不断成长的行业就像一面镜子一样,反映出了OFC持续多年的10%净销售面积的增长模式。

“OFC是一个年度交流盛会”, OFC2016大会主席Kathleen Tse说。”OFC——是一个全球性的,涵盖了光学和数据交流与一身的展会。今年也不例外。这个盛会最初的会议模式都能体现出很多人在这个会议中的辛勤工作和奉献付出,其中包括技术会议的主席,小组委员会的主席以及委员会成员等。谢谢所有志愿者丢这个世界级会议的奉献和付出。技术会谈和市场观察项目给电信,光通信和数据通信起了个最有创意的名字。这些研究人员探讨了许多全球趋势,包括200G到500G技术的新进展,低成本的光分插复用器技术, 更高容量产品平台,更高速度元件,更快的测试设备以及更多。

经历了在行业中不断增长的宽带需求和从10G到100G不断变化的传输速率,是今年OFC其中一个最让我印象深刻的事情。今年出席我们多样化主题短期课程的人增加了百分之五十. — 从光学元件到光传输系统,“OFC2016大会主席,日本名古屋大学佐藤健一博士说道。

光学的热门话题
OFC的参展商们拿出了超过160件产品,服务以及合作的公告,其中包括了自防御网络的技术进展,200G波多复用器,25G以太网光学以及需求激增的新版100G QSFP28的格式。具体详情可在参展商新闻中查看。

来自世界各地的研究人员提出了行业先进技术的同行评议论文,内容如下:
新光学发送器能够床再出更加良好的通讯网—为了满足今日的数据需求,一个全新的宽带变量发射器是在一个灵活优化的光学网络中起到了一个至关重要的作用。

锗基光子学为新型传感器和更快的网络提供了保证—来自东京大学的研究人员成功地为纳米集成光路建立了源于半岛体锗的基本组件,能够让光子电路工作在中红外波段,从而提高网速。

破纪录的信号传输能力为更快的网络开辟了一条新的道路—来自中兴的一群前途无量的光通信系统研究人员实验证明,最高容量单模光纤信号传输,是有大量物质互相交结的。

破纪录达到低成本数据中心之间的数据传输—来自德国先进光学网络的研究人员不仅向我们展示了最高速度,还是利用PAM-4传播的。

Successful 2016 Optical Fiber Communications Conference Concludes in Anaheim

World’s Largest Optical Communications and Networking Conference Featured Evolution of Data Centers, SDN, Silicon Photonics, Network Speed and Efficiency

ANAHEIM, California—This year’s OFC Conference and Exhibition, held March 20 – 24 at the Anaheim Convention Center, featured 580 exhibiting companies, more than 1,160 peer-reviewed papers and exceeded 13,000 attendees. An exciting array of show floor programs featuring industry experts highlighted the need to keep current with developments in the field. Mirroring a dynamic and growing industry, OFC continued its multi-year growth pattern with 10 percent growth in net square footage sold.

“OFC is the networking event of the year,” said Kathleen Tse, AT&T, OFC 2016 General Co-Chair. “It’s where the global community involved in optical and data networking comes together to take the pulse of the industry. This year was no exception. The event’s premier conference program reflects the hard work and dedication of many, including the technical program chairs, subcommittee chairs and committee members. Thank you to all the volunteers for their contribution to this world-class conference.”

Technical talks and the Market Watch programs drew the most innovative names in telecom, optical communications and datacom. These researchers and industry experts explored numerous global trends including advances in 200G to 500G coherent technologies, lower cost ROADM technology, higher capacity product platforms, higher speed components, faster test equipment and much more.

“With the industry experiencing escalating bandwidth needs and the constant change in data rates from 10G to 40G to 100G, this year’s OFC was one of the most exciting I can remember. The attendance to our short courses increased by 50 percent this year spanning diverse topics—from optical components to optical transport systems,” said OFC 2016 General Co-Chair Ken-ichi Sato, Nagoya University, Japan.

Hot Topics in Optics This year’s exhibit floor and conference featured global leaders, diverse programming, interactive workshops and unique technical sessions. OFC exhibitors made more than 160 product, service and partner announcements, including technical advancements in SDN, 200G WDM, 25G Ethernet optics and the surge in demand for the new 100G QSFP28 format.
