Webinar ECI – thought-provoking topics in optical networking

Optical networks are the unsung hero of our global internet economy, allowing effortless transmission of information at virtually no cost. In this webinar we explore recent advances in how optical networks can be made to work even better for us.

  1. Layer 1 optical encryption is the only way to protect against fibre tapping. Until now, you needed to encrypt all the information on a wavelength at once. In the webinar we show how to encrypt individual services selectively, and the advantages this provides.
  2. Previously, monitoring your optical network meant dispatching personnel with test equipment. Besides being costly, this approach doesn’t meet the needs of a new dynamically controlled SDN network.

On Thursday 9th November at 12:00 GMT (13:00 CET)  ECI will present a webinar covering these exciting topics. In the webinar ECI will show how to implement centralised “no touch” monitoring, enabling you to keep your fingers on the pulse of your optical network continuously.

This webinar is ideal for all network engineers, designers and managers interested in investigating the next generation of Optical Networking.

The webinar will be shown on the GÉANT Showcase channel kindly hosted by SUNET
