4 November 2020 / 16:00 - 18:30
EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Datacenter Interconnects (in cooperation with COBO and EA)
Online Event

In cooperation with

The big data era drives interconnection schemes to have low cost, higher energy efficiency, and higher bandwidths, with optical links needing an upgrade to 400Gb/s in the next few years. In this meeting, the needs and expectations for the future manufacturing of photonic devices such as optical switches, transceivers and fiber technology will be discussed.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
