CONNECT papers accepted for OFC 2018



CONNECT researchers have had several papers accepted for the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Conference in San Diego in March 2018. This is the most prestigious conference in the world of optical networks.

Marco Ruffini‘s team at Trinity College Dublin have had four papers and a demonstration accepted. The papers address SDN, network virtualisation, multi-tenancy and the convergence of fixed and mobile networks for 5G. Liam Barry and his team at Dublin City University have had two papers accepted.

The paper titles are:
