OFC is the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. The program goes from research to marketplace, from components to systems and networks and from technical sessions to the exhibition. OFC draws attendees from all corners of the globe. OFC 2023 took place in San Diego, California (USA) on 05 – 09 March 2023 and TeraFlow had a lot of activity on this event!
TeraFlow had two invited speakers in Track N “Networks, Applications, and Access” - N3 “Architectures and Software-Defined Control for Metro and Core Networks”
- Carlos Natalino da Silva, Chalmers University of Technology: “Machine-Learning-as-a-Service for Optical Network Automation”.
- Ricard Vilalta, CTTC: “End-to-End Interdomain Transport Network Slice Management Using DLT-Enabled Cloud-Based SDN Controllers”.
On Monday, Hanne-Stine Hallingby from Telenor was asked to virtually share her thoughts and visions about the mobile operator's expectations to transport networks in M2H Panel: “Connectivity for Beyond 5G: How Can Wireline and Wireless Optical Access Live Up to the Mobile Expectations?”. During her virtual presentation “6G vision and the future mobile operator emerging requirements”, she presented some interesting contributions thanks to her recent experience in TeraFlow.
