The conference is intended to share among the industry and the academia communities, the knowledge, new findings, and experience on the state-of-the-art of “IP and Optical Networking technologies.” Within the theme, we intend to demonstrate IP & MPLS/GMPLS networks and SDN equipment (IP routers, ODU XCs, Optical XCs, Ethernet switches, MPLS-TP nodes), protocol test equipment/tools, network operation support tools, and other related issues. In addition, we intend to showcase SDN (Software Defined Networks) and NFV (Network Functions Virtualization). The iPOP2021 anticipates a draw of over 300 attendees, made up of network operators, service providers, and equipment vendors.

Join us and other industry leaders in the IP+Optical network technologies. For booth reservation and all other requests, please contact iPOP2021 Exhibition Secretary ( by Aug. 18, 2021. Exhibitors will be obliged to provide electronic data of poster panel and promotional videos by the beginning of September 2021, which will be uploaded on the website of iPOP2021.

We intend to showcase multi-cloud based end-to-end network slicing and applications empowered by several mainstream technologies, such as machine learning, network automation, highly reliable network architecture, low latency communications, disaggregated open whitebox, and security. This year's showcase challenges to remotely demonstrate most parts of its interoperable experiments from geographically distant sites. In this year, we also try to use cloud-based applications for remote interoperative demonstration.

Followings are candidate scenarios of our showcase (but we also welcome to other proposal). 
(1) Spatial Division Multiplexed Optical Networks
(2) Highly Reliable Networks
(3) Automation of Network Management Operation
(4) RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE)
(5) Machine Learning
(6) Failure Management
(7) Cyber Security (Secure Access Service Edge etc.)
