Xtera committed to the SubOptic 2019 event as a Gold Sponsor in anticipation of another successful conference for the industry. This opportunity is ideal for Xtera as it provides them the chance to align their brand with the top industry event and exposure to 1,000+ industry professionals and clearly demonstrates their dedication to the industry as a whole.

“Xtera has been a supporter of SubOptic since the company was first formed in the early 2000’s. Suboptic’s focus on technology and innovation has always complemented Xtera’s thinking and as such, we have been a keen participant leading both Master Classes and Papers Sessions.  SubOptic provides a fantastic opportunity to look across the industry and determine what future subsea requirements will be; customers, suppliers and consultants gathered together in such a productive forum is a very rare and special thing.  Open systems have driven Xtera’s R&D efforts for many years and the 2019 theme ‘To the Beach and Beyond – Rethinking Global Networks’ highlights this move to disaggregated system acquisition.  This theme also places in sharp focus the pivotal point the subsea business is at with Data Centre to Date Centre direct connectivity growing and a difficulty in monetising traditional infrastructure.  We are particularly looking forward to the next conference in New Orleans, as Xtera’s Chairman, Stuart Barnes, is serving as the Program Chair.  Stuart’s experience and enthusiasm is helping to shape what looks to be an exciting program with a fresh focus on diversity, demographics and globalisation.”

– Leigh Frame, Chief Operating Officer, Xtera 

With more than 65 countries expected to be represented a full line-up of Master Classes and the Call for Papers going out next week — this is by far, the most exciting and largest event for professionals in the sub-fiber optic industry. Xtera, the host Ciena and the esteemed programme committee are joining forces to ensure SubOptic 2019 is a first-class event.
