TREX is pleased to host a seminar on ISP Tools and Wavelength Division Multiplexing together with sponsors Adva Optical Networking Alcatel-Lucent, Netnordic, Nixu Software and Rittal. The seminar will be held on Wednesday the 30th of October 2013 at Technopolis Yliopistonrinne in downtown Tampere from 12:00 to 18:00 and continue as a networking event in their sauna department. The seminar will be of value to anyone interested in developing ISP services or networks, and of course to everyone interested in peering at TREX.
ISPs need a lot of very specialized business automation tools. Some of these tools are released to open source, some are products of other companies and some are just in house scripts. This seminar will have thought provoking presentations on this topic.
Wavelength Division Multiplexing is becoming more affordable and use cases for Coarse and Dense WDM are becoming more prevalent. Some new technologies such as 100Gbps Ethernet positively rely on WDM in order to work. We have invited industry experts to shed light on what's going on in the world of photonics.
Please note that all times are given in the local time zone (EET+2).
Parking and Flights
There is some limited parking at Technopolis Yliopistonrinne. The nearest big parking facility is Tullintori.
One World and Star Alliance have direct flights from Stockholm (ARN) or Copenhagen (CPH) to the Tampere-Pirkkala International Airport (TMP). At least Air Baltic and Ryanair also have some direct international flights from other countries at cheaper prices.
Flying via Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport (HEL) to TMP is also possible with e.g. One World or Star Alliance, but it might be easier to just take the train for that leg of the journey. The trains run every day at least once per hour between 06:00 and 22:00. Bus number 61 takes you from HEL to the Tikkurila railway station. By coincidence, bus number 61 takes you from TMP to Tampere city centre.
There are several reputable hotels belonging to different chains within 500 meters of the venue. Holiday Inn Tampere, Scandic Tampere Station and Sokos Hotel Villa Tampere are probably the closest hotels to the venue. Other comfortable choices include Cumulus, Scandic and Sokos Hotels.
