Welcome Remarks

We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to all participants to iPOP2010 International Conference. With the tremendous success it has gained in the past five years, iPOP, which has been sponsored by PIL and Isocore since its inception, has clearly established itself as the key event for the optical transport and IP networks. The 6th Conference in this series is being held at NTT Musashino R&D Center, Musashino-shi, Tokyo, June 10-11, 2010, making it possible once more to bring the IP and Optical technology community together and to add to a great experience.

The iPOP2010 International Conference addresses important topics and issues related to Optical Transport Networks and IP Networking. This year, the technical program committee has put together an exciting program consisting of technical sessions with emphasis on presentations on Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON), Wavelength Switched Optical Network (WSON), GMPLS, Path Computation Element (PCE), Multi-Layer Network (MLN) and Ethernet transport.

We hope that you would be able to plan to attend and enjoy iPOP2010 and make this event a great success! We look forward to your participation.
