Listeners were given an understanding of the connection system and challenges encountered when integrating this system into existing network architecture. An explanation of the factory installation of an MTP was also given in a short informative video. "Parallel optics are key to the growth of existing network systems 40 and 100 Gig networks will become more prevalent in the coming years. Preparation is key to seamless integration" said John Taylor on the importance of the webcast seminar.
