Optical Network Technology Development for the Era of Computing Power Forum

More Information coming soon!

Currently, the world is rapidly advancing towards digital transformation in the economic and social sectors. Optical networks, as a crucial component and critical foundation of information infrastructure, are increasingly demonstrating their value. In 2023, the release of products such as chatGPT has ignited the market for generative AI, further driving the demand for high computing power. chatGPT, as a large-scale AI model, effectively combines big data, large computing power, and strong algorithms, tightly integrating data, computing power, and networks. The training of AI large models significantly impacts both the quantity and quality of the entire optical communications industry chain. It not only requires the computing networks with exceptional capacity, but also requires the optical networks that provide high-quality connections, large-capacity transmission capabilities, and ultra-high bandwidth. Nowadays, all-optical connections are becoming the foundation of the future digital era, and optical networks are also promoting the transformation of networks from infrastructure networks to business networks through the reconstruction of network architecture, so as to better serve the digital economy. On this basis, the optical network is at a significant turning point in its application and service, and the high-speed optical modules and devices, ultra-large capacity transmission, ultra-high bandwidth, super-fast connection rates, multi-layer collaboration, and cutting-edge technological advancements in the field of optical communications also usher in unprecedented challenges and opportunities.

In this context, APE, in collaboration with the upstream and downstream industry chain of optical communication, will deeply explore and exchange ideas on the development of cutting-edge technologies and technical challenges on the next generation optical transmission and access. and jointly built a solid optical network foundation for the digital world.
