5G in India – Role of Optical Transport to build 5G Networks?

Virtual Event | 27th August 2021


Welcome to


Summit  2021

About The Event

In order to build our leadership position in ICT events in India - Nexgen Conferences is pleased to announce our flagship event on optical transport networks into its 6th successful year as 6th Future Generation Optical Transport Networks Summit 2021, scheduled to be held on 27th August 2021. Due to COVID – 19 pandemic this year OTN 2021 will be virtual event which will schedule live.

The Optical Transport Networks market in India is set to demonstrate a high growth in next 5 years. The increased demand of bandwidth from both residential and business customers is playing a major role in shaping the future of the optical transport network market. The emphasis will be on exploring smarter as well as cost-effective solutions for entire Optical Transport Network (OTN) portfolio including optical-fibre technology, Wave-length Division Multiplexing (WDM) and high-capacity network infrastructure. Transmission networks have an important role to play in the economics of services provisioning exploiting network automation, regarding network optimization which helps reducing CAPEX and agile services provisioning to cut OPEX and increase customer experience. Optical Transport Network is the way to effectively deal with data traffic loads which we are witnessing presently. At Future Generation Optical Transport Networks Summit 2020 will address most important challenges by the leading vendors & operators under one roof to look at the future landscape of the technology.

The conference will provide attendees an opportunity to learn key protection techniques for optical mesh networks as well as best practices in deploying transport networks.

The Conference will discuss the followings:

  1. Focuses on the latest innovations across IP, MPLS, Ethernet, OTN, and DWDM.
  2. Understand the future generation optical transport evolution & Differentiation.
  3. Industry step forward towards 100G, 200G, 400G & 1TBits.
  4. Role of Optical Transport Networks for 5G and beyond.
  5. How to transform legacy optical networks to flexible, agile, future generation optical Networks?
  6. Hear about the latest standardization developments on future optical transport networks .
  7. Examining the future generation Optical switching Architecture for Data Center Networks.
