ISMB @ ECOC 2014

19 September 2014

This year again, ISMB will take part in the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC), the largest and long-standing event in the field in Europe. The 40th edition is held in Cannes (France) from 21th to 25th of September 2014.

The Applied Photonics Research Area contributed to four papers to be presented within the conference.

Two oral talks will illustrate the two main optical transmission experiments carried out at ISMB. One (1) deals with a long-haul transmission project in partnership with the Politecnico di Torino and CISCO. The other one (2) describes a PON access network experiment in the frame of the European project FDMA Access By Using Low-cost Optical network Units in Silicon photonics (FABULOUS).

A third oral presentation (3) will focus on an another long-haul experiment realized in collaboration with the Universidade de Aveiro and the Instituto de Telecomunicações in Aveiro (Portugal).

Moreover, a poster (4) will illustrate an experimental work on PON access network carried out in partnership with Politecnico di Torino and CISCO.
