As I look at both the trade show booths and the poster papers from OFC and reflect back on what I’ve seen this year versus the past few years, I believe that we are ready for disruptive change. Every year there are many new disruptive technologies being put forth as ready for implementation? But the real question is, are those changes and technologies being presented ready to be accepted?
Some of the radical concept products that have been presented over the last 20 years look like they would disrupt the existing technologies but did not. A couple of examples the Amp Optimate connectors the biconic connector, slotted core cables, snap in cables, etc.
