Packing up Packet Optical Network Platforms

Sean Buckley, FierceTelecomI wanted to take a minute to invite you to the second of FierceTelecom's three-part webinar series on Packet Optical Network Platforms (PONPs). Our second webinar in the series--Carrier Roundtable: Packet optical networking platforms--will be held today, Wednesday, July 21 at 2:00 ET.  

During these webinars, you'll get to hear a number of service provider experts talk about the utility of PONPs in their respective networks. We'll also discuss the various pros and cons of the various approaches to PONPs.  

Sponsored by Fujitsu and Alcatel-Lucent, this star-studded cast includes representatives from the following service providers: Arbinet, GTA TeleGuam, ION (Independent Optical Networks), Level 3 Communications, PacketExchange, and Zayo Enterprise Networks. These discussions will be complemented with insights from two well known industry analysts covering the PONP space: Michael Kennedy of Network Strategy Partners and Eve Griliches of ACG Research.
