ECOC expands into optical broadband and access for 2006

In line with the conference scope, the ECOC exhibition will also address optical extension to the end user.
The show is being held this year at the Palais des Festivals & des Congrès in Cannes on 24 - 28 September. For the first time there will be a significant presence to reflect the crucial and growing role that optical communications is playing in the Broadband and Access arenas and this has been welcomed by many of the leading companies taking part.
"The converged world of communications is happening all around us and affecting all our lives every single day," said Simon Kears, Nexus Media Marketing Manager.
"Perhaps the most common example has been the spread of Broadband and it is the bandwidth carrying capability of optical communications that has made this revolution possible. It was therefore a natural progression for ECOC to begin to reflect how the industry's commitment to research and constant new developments are continuing to play a fundamental role in how communications is changing for all of us - wherever we are on the planet."
The extension of the ECOC 2006 programme will include various presentations from two new categories: 'Backbone and metro core networks' and 'Broadband and access networks'.
