Conferences & Exhibitions
The LAN organises exhibitions several times a year geared for companies that are fore-runners in our Industry.
The associated « workshops» reunite main industry players (such as manufacturers, standards and regulative organisations, operators…) to work on a common subject of interest in a neutral environment. The objective is to bring ideas to the table, and maximise interoperability between chips of a certain technological field (such as DSL, GPON, PLC,..) by performing tests based on representative fields of interest at the current time (eg triple-play).
The objective is also to evaluate the impact of new technology already widely deployed to help define practical rules of deployment (for example, maximum level of emissions). It is generally the moment, whilst tests are being carried out, to prepare how the technology will evolve discussing new functionality and proposing specifications for implementation which may be included in the standard itself.
