NewsVoir | 29 Jan, 2016

The first edition of Next Generation-Optical Transport Networks Summit 2016, an international Conference cum exhibition concludes with a positive note. The conference was organized by Nexgen Conferences, one of India’s leading conferences & B2B events organizer. This conference was held at The Lalit in Mumbai. The conference was designed to ensure highly focused communication across all segments of optical transport network including all ecosystems to come together under one roof to exchange ideas, develop expertise and share best practices.


Speaking on the occasion, Sudhir Gupta, Secretary, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said, “Once government’s telecom infrastructure projects take shape, the demand for further data growth is inevitable at a very high level. Hence, optical fibre networks play a very important role at this juncture. From the regulatory point of view, we (TRAI) are giving number of recommendations to the government particularly in this specific area.”


“We are already at inception point as far as data traffic is concerned. We have already seen data explosion happening and it is driven by Asian countries like China and India or let us put it reverse India or China. India is also leading the number of mobile subscriptions which is also causing a lot of growth in data traffic. Some years back we used to speak about next generation technologies, next generation transport etc. Now the time is here to say that this is the next generation, seeing how the traffic is growing, the need for huge increase in a large scale and also the characteristics that this traffic demands.”- Sudhir Gupta further added.


Chandan Kumar, Director- Marketing & Integrated Solutions, Huawei Telecommunications (India) Co. Pvt. Ltd said, “As data is growing at exponential rate and nature of data is also changing a service agnostic and flexible platform such as OTN is need of the hour at access, aggregation and core layer of a transport network. Huawei being leader in this domain has developed innovative solutions which can meet Indian Telecom operators needs to have advance networks which offers switching of traffic at right rate and at right place while offering lowest cost per bit transport with multiple fibre cut protection using ASON technology at layer1 and layer2  in OTN based DWDM solutions.”


Addressing the audience, Rakesh Kumar, CTO- Bharti Airtel said, “The growth of broadband in the country has been phenomenal. Technology like Optical Transport Network (OTN) allows to put all kinds of payloads of client signals into one transport bucket and also ability to switch across lambdas. Today, the operators have evolved their networks to OTN based technologies. OTN helps to increase in the amount of capacity that can be provisioned from 10G to 40G and 40G to 100G.”


Anjani Kumar Singh, CEO, Nexgen Conferences said, “We are delighted to see the participation of quality speakers from well-known organizations during the first edition of Next Generation-Optical Transport Networks Summit. We had very useful and engaging sessions at the summit where Optical Transport Network industry professionals deliberated on key challenges and opportunities of this industry with a focus on new-age technologies and emerging business solutions in India & globally”


The network providers and networking equipment manufacturers are obliged to support a huge digital traffic flowing over the networks. The increasing usage of application through smart phones and mobiles has overloaded the current networks. However, Optical Transport Network (OTN) has come up as a huge success in the present scenario, as it can easily support high bandwidth.


The conference brought together key industry players at one platform and will provide high level business networking opportunities to the participants. The conference also had an exhibition area where leading players showcased their products and services which include players like Huawei, Adva Optical Networking and Anritsu Corporation, among others.
