OpenWave Presentation at the 13th Annual ON*VECTOR Photonics Workshop on March 5-6, 2014

Julio Ibarra, FIU, PI, Heidi Alvarez, FIU, Co-PI, Chip Cox, FIU, Co-PI and Louis Fox, CENIC, Co-PI presented an overview of the Amlight OpenWave: U.S.-Brazil 100G Experimental Alien Wave.
Research scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs from seven countries gathered at the University of California, San Diego, from March 2-4 for the annual ON*VECTOR International Photonics Workshop, a three-day “meeting of the minds” devoted to exploring the hottest and most relevant topics in computing and networking.

ON*VECTOR stands for Optical Networked Virtual Environments Collaborative Trans-Oceanic Research. The annual ON*VECTOR workshop has contributed to the increased international use and ongoing development of photonic (or optical) networks. Optical networks — or communication networks that transmit information in the form of light (photons) — provide greatly increased bandwidth because multiple signals can be transmitted through optical fiber across individual wavelengths of light, called lambdas.
