Readiness Of 50G-PON in Terms of Technology, Standard and Ecosystem China Mobile: Junwei Li, Senior Expert on Optical Access In this talk, the readiness of 50G-PON in terms of technology, standard and ecosystem will be presented. The ITU-T has recently consented a series of standards related to 50Gbps passive optical network (50G-PON), which represents a significant leap from the current 10G-PON systems. Such an advance is made possible by innovations in optical transceiver components, digital signal processing-based channel equalisation, and enhanced forward error correction. Routed Optical Networking Cisco: Lorenzo Ghioni, Director of Product Management This presentation will explain the Routed Optical Network, a new paradigm for networking that delivers improved operational efficiencies. The architecture has consistently demonstrated a 45%

Emerging Industrial Manufacturing Requirements Including Private 5G Communications, IIoT Sensors, and Security EPIC: Tracey Vanik, Head Of Photonics Market Research This presentation will examine the important role photonics plays in industrial applications including 5G Private Networks, real-time imaging & equipment control, synchronisation, high-speed connectivity, and security for connected IIoT devices. High-Capacity Pathways – Fibre Innovations for a Connected Future Corning: Roshene Mccool, Market & Technology Development Manager The need for effective delivery of communication networks has never been greater, as bandwidth demands from users grow and the services connected

Extending OpenROADM to the Network Edge Lumentum: Raj Nagarajan, Product Line Manager The OpenROADM MSA has recently released an updated specification that extends ROADM capability from the existing Metro-core application, to cover aggregation networks in the Metro- access where fixed OADM has historically been prevalent. This presentation will discuss supported architectures at the edge and interoperability with Metro- core OpenROADM, along with the key differences between the Edge ROADM optical specification and the existing OpenROADM specification. High Volume Integrated Silicon Photonics for Next Generation Lidar and Other Sensing Applications Intel: Robert Blum, Sr. Director of Marketing and New Business This presentation will discuss progress and challenges in using silicon photonics for coherent FMCW LiDAR applications and review other applications that could potentially benefit from a mature silicon photonics platform with integrated lasers, amplifiers, and receivers. Extending Coherent to The Edge – How and Why Now? Infinera: Dave Welch, CTO This session describes how point-to- multipoint coherent optical pluggables enable service providers to push coherent to the access while leveraging existing infrastructure (e.g., PON) and deliver higher capacity (40x vs. XGS-PON), better flexibility, and 70+% TCO reduction. A New Specification for Multi- Wavelength Optical Laser Sources for Advanced Integrated Optics Chris Cole, Chair, CW-WDM MSA; Advisor, II-VI Incorporated Chris Cole will present details of the new specification for 8, 16, and 32 wavelength optical sources to facilitate advances in artificial intelligence, data centre efficiency, and other advanced applications of optical interconnect. Data Centre Optics – 400G and Above Rollout and the Promise of Co- Packaged Optics Omida: Lisa Huff, CDCMP®, Senior Principal Analyst ICP data centres are quickly adopting 400G optics inside their data centres and are looking towards the next progression of network technology to simplify and reduce cost and power consumption. This presentation will summarise the high-speed network connectivity adoption, ICP data centre network evolution and its needs. The advantages and risks of CPO will also be discussed.

to communication infrastructures increase in diversity. As network

connectivity and complexity increases, the ability to deliver increased capacity over more pathways has become the focus of innovation in fibre and cable. This presentation will explore the options available to increase capacity and deliver more pathways, and explore the fibre innovations that will support multi- service networks of the future. Optical Communications for Satellite Networking: From Free Space Optics to Optics in Space! II-VI: Sanjai Parthasarathi, Chief Marketing Officer The status and evolution of the emerging satellite market segment within optical communications will be discussed, reviewing trends, sizing opportunities as well as trying separate fact from fiction! COVID has shown us the importance of high-speed connectivity to our lives including in critical applications like telehealth. Next Steps in Coherent Interface Standardisation Acacia, now part of Cisco: Tom Williams, Director of Marketing Standardisation of coherent technology has taken a big step forward at 400G supporting applications in DCI and service provider networks. Looking toward the next generation, there are opportunities to increase speeds and expand the application space to address both shorter and longer reach interfaces using pluggable coherent optics. Meanwhile, silicon photonics is fast becoming the preferred material for high-speed coherent interfaces. The presentation will analyse how these trends are expected to influence next generation networks and investment in coherent technology.

modelling examples. With a single service layer based upon IP, flexible management tools can leverage telemetry and model- driven programmability to streamline lifecycle operations. Can Optical Keep Up With Evolving RAN Requirements? Ericsson Telecommunicazioni Spa: Peter Finn, Strategic Head of Product Line Optical From 1G to 5G, radio technology continues to advance. Operators are constantly challenged to stick or twist with respect to when and where to invest in a very public competition to provide the highest performing network. With performance measures openly available, and operators under pressure to deliver shareholder value, can optical technology keep pace and help provide faster, & more flexible solutions at the right cost? Self-Tuning Bidirectional 50GBASE- ER Optical Transceiver Based on Temperature Control and Silica-Based Comb Filter Qxp Technologies Inc: Nancy Zhou, Marketing Director This presentation will examine the challenges facing 5G transport networks to further increase the transmission capacity and reduce system cost. 50-Gbps optical transceiver based on PAM4 has been widely investigated and deployed in transport network, especially for the access layer of 5G backhaul transport network, doubling the transmission rate compared with 25- Gbps NRZ scheme.
