AFCEA-OKC Cybersecurity and Technology Forum

Tellabs and the AFCEA Oklahoma Chapter (AFCEA-OKC) invites you to participate in the 18th Annual Cybersecurity and Technology Forum set to take place on September 21-22nd at Rose State College which is adjacent to Tinker AFB in Oklahoma.

At this event you can learn about leading edge cyber and IT advancements from subject matter expert speaker, connect with solution provider partners in the exhibit hall, and network with industry leaders tasked with meeting the mission critical needs of the United States Air Force and Tinker Air Force Base. Tinker AFB is a major US base, with tenant U.S. Navy and other Department of Defense missions, located near Midwest City, Oklahoma.

Tellabs’ Joel Fischer (Director SE Operations) will be delivering a presentation on day-1 (Sept 21st at 11:15) titled “Passive Optical Networks: A Better Way to Build and Operate Networks.” Mr. Fischer will speak to how Passive Optical LAN (e.g. PON, GPON, and/or 10 gigabit XGS-PON) is a building and base-wide connectivity technology that flattens and simplifies network design. It reduces network vulnerabilities (i.e. shrinks the network attack surface) and is ideal for Zero Trust Architecture. It has centralized intelligence with software-defined management. Furthermore, he will expand on how PON lowers total cost of ownership for agencies and is proven across all government markets.
