March 25, 2009 -- Stephen Hardy, chief editor and associate publisher of Cabling Installation & Maintenance's sister publication, LIGHTWAVE, is blogging from the 2009 OFC/NFOEC conference in San Diego. OFC/NFOEC is billed as the premier international event for both the science and business of optical communications, with a comprehensive technical program and an expansive all-optical business exhibition.

At the show, Lightwave's Hardy hosted the annual OSA/Lightwave Executive Forum, which was definitely "the place to be" on the first day of OFC/NFOEC week. On today's Lightwave Blog, in addition to Verizon's pitch for a long-haul packet optical transport platform, Hardy reveals the inside scoop on other interesting tidbits at the absolute cutting edge of the optical telecom space.
