ECOC Hits Record Numbers as Event Nears

The European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC) - the second largest event of its kind in the world - has received nearly 1000 proposals for technical papers for this year's event in Cannes, 24th - 28th September - a record.

Falling under the topic of this year's conference - From Devices to Network Applications - papers include technology issues across the optics, broadband, FTTx and network solutions arenas. The show will also feature a market focus series of seminars, concentrating on the European Market, IPTV, metro and core network status, and FTTx in Europe.

ECOC will also this year launch an FTTx resource centre, where visitors will be able to view products, speak with experts and manufacturers, and browse through FTTx-related literature.

More than 3, 000 visitors and over 1, 000 conference delegates visited the 2005 ECOC event at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow. Already, ECOC 2006 is expecting to attract more than 1500 delegates to this year's event and anticipates increases in exhibitor and visitor numbers.
