Beyond 100G, Upgrading Existing Networks

Sponsored by:

VarData and ECI Telecom

November 9, 2017
2:00 p.m. ET


Only a few years ago, 100G was considered an expensive science project. Today, 100G is an economical choice for both large and small network operators and the technology is moving rapidly to higher speeds. However, while 100G operated well on networks designed for lower speeds, rates beyond 100G may require changes to optical networks. In this webinar, network operators who are considering 100G upgrades or think that they might at some point in the future will learn about the challenges beyond 100G and how to prepare for them today.

Preregistration is required for the webcast
