POF Symposium @ OFC/NFOEC 2010

03/25/2010 10:00 am

On March 25th, POFTO hosted the "POF Symposium @ NFOEC/OFC 2010" on the show floor. Over a dozen presentations were made over a three hour period on the latest development of POF and its applications. The audience filled up the main seating area and people were standing in the aisles.

Of special interest, was a presentation by AT&T on their experience in wiring four homes in the Northern California area. The objective was to learn how installers would react to POF and what was needed in the way of new equipment and interfaces to make this a viable option for AT&T installation of home wiring.
