Multi-Layer Packet-Optical:
The Path to Efficient Networks

WEBINAR ON DEMAND

OVERVIEW
Service providers are adopting multiple concepts from the IT world to build more flexible networks capable of service agility and handling dynamic customer and traffic requirements. Open systems and transport virtualization are some of the key building blocks for extracting this value from the ROADM, OTN, and Ethernet switching elements that define packet-optical networking. This webinar looks at how these technologies together open the possibilities of real-time service provisioning, router replacement, white box hardware deployment and network abstraction for more efficient network orchestration. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Service providers evaluating or deploying multilayer networks, financial analysts and the media.
