Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN, news, filings) will discuss important aspects of the evolution of Digital Optical Networks in two talks at Light Reading's Packet-Optical Transport Evolution Conference on Wednesday, May 18th, in New York.
Infinera Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer Drew Perkins will discuss the evolution of Infinera's architecture to offer packet functionality as part of Infinera's integrated DWDM and OTN switching capabilities. To address ever-growing bandwidth demand, successful next-generation networks will integrate packet, OTN switching and optical transport capabilities to deliver new network economics resulting from increased efficiency, scalability, reliability, and intelligence. Mr. Perkins will speak at a panel entitled "OTN & the Future of Packet-Optical Transport."
Infinera's Director of Solutions Marketing, Vinay Rathore, will present on the Digital ROADM in the panel on "Next Generation ROADM Architectures." Many of the features analog ROADMs are striving to add today, such as colorless, directionless, and contentionless operation, are already implemented in the Digital ROADM and Mr. Rathore will discuss the features and future capabilities of Digital ROADMs.
