BICSI Winter 2022 at Orlando World Center Marriott

BICSI Winter Conference 2022, being held in Orlando from January 30th through February 3rd, will be buzzing with important Optical LAN news and activities. These notable actions include advocacy driven by Tellabs, our OLAN partners and the Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN).

During the BICSI Winter exhibit hall hours, Tellabs’ products and solutions will be showcased by many of our strategic industry alliance partners, in particular OCC (booth 1320), Hubbell (booth 619), Cailabs (booth 1035), Panduit (booth 505), and EXFO (booth 1217).

APOLAN will be busy at BICSI Winter leading three impactful events:

  • The pre-conference 2-day Passive Optical LAN masterclass will be offered on Sunday and Monday rewarding the participants with 12 continued education credits from BICSI.
  • Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the APOLAN exhibit hall booth (booth 530) will be staffed by POL experts ready to answer all questions about the technology and the growing global market.
  • The annual members’ meeting will be held on Tuesday (February 1st at 11am ET) in the San Antonio room of the Orlando World Center Marriott. The three main highlights of the meeting include APOLAN leaders discussing 2021 successes and 2022 initiatives, keynote speaker Patrick McLaughlin (Chief Editor from Smart Buildings Technology), plus the 2021 APOLAN award winners will be announced recognizing member company leadership in POL education, innovation and promotion.

Tellabs is looking forward to a productive, and safe, BICSI Winter 2022, as the ICT industry joins together to promote Optical LAN as a better way to build and operate enterprise networks.
