About the ECOC Exhibition

ECOC is an international exhibition that can help professionals in achieving several goals. One of them is exchanging information and expanding their specialist knowledge. The event can aid in completing such business goals via its comprehensive event agenda.

Among the main features of the schedule is the extensive exhibition, where both start-ups and leading companies showcase their novel solutions. These include optic fibres, integrated circuits, components, and others.

Another central feature of the ECOC exhibition’s support programme is the Market Focus zone. It is where attendees can learn about photonics integrations and fibre access. The Market Focus features lectures where leading organisations present the latest information. The Market Focus speakers include Scott Schube, Peter Finn, and Lorenzo Ghioni.

The Innovation Awards are also among the main features of the ECOC’s support programme. They laud accomplishments related to optical communications, networks, and integrated circuits with photonics. The Awards include six categories: Best Fibre/Fibre Component Product, Best Data Centre Innovation Product, Innovative FTTX Product, Most Innovative Product, Optical Integration, and Optical Transport.

The Best Fibre honours technology, process, or product innovations that improve fibre or fibre component qualities.  The Data Centre Innovation acknowledges novelties that augment one or more aspects of data centres. The Innovative FTTX Product honours solutions that increase management scalability and bandwidth capacity. The Most Innovative Product award is for products that drive market segment changes.
