University of Arizona iExpo 2024 and Optical LAN

by | Jan 15, 2024 | Event

Meet our university campus networking experts at University of Arizona iExpo and hear how Optical LAN is a better way to build and operate school networks

We are looking forward to having an open dialogue on how Passive Optical Networking is a better way to build and operate school networks at the University of Arizona. We will be on campus for the “Tellabs Takeover Day” on January 24th and participating in The University of Arizona 32nd Annual Industry Exposition (iExpo) on January 25th.

On January 25th (Thursday), we will be participating in the iExpo career fair as a potential employer for interns and full-time engineering positions. Be sure to come connect with our recruiters to talk about career opportunities at Tellabs. All these events provide an excellent opportunity for Tellabs to engage with engineering students. We are honored to be asked to help these students make the transition between academics and a career in optical networking engineering. Details of the activities on January 24th (Wednesday) “Tellabs Takeover Day” include:

  • 10 am – 12 noon: Tellabs Lobby Day in the Old Engineering Lobby, 1127 E. James E. Rogers Way
  • 4 pm: Tellabs Tech Talk in the Engineering Design Center, 715 N. Park Ave, 2nd Floor
  • 6 pm: Tellabs Info Session, Old Engineering building, room 214

Over these two days, Tellabs will showcase how optical networks unifies and extends university networks inside classrooms, and across campuses, which ultimately improves connectivity demands for better student learning – all while lowering costs for school administrators. We are also excited for our very own Joel Fischer (Sales Engineering Director) to be a guest lecturer leading discussions covering Passive Optical Networking and Sustainability.
