Lightwave has opened the submission process for the fourth annual Lightwave Innovation Reviews program. The review program recognizes excellence in a product or technology, an application, or in research and development.
A panel of judges evaluates submitted entries for originality, innovation, positive impact on the customer, how well it addresses a new or existing requirement, novelty of approach, and cost-effectiveness and rates them on a scale of one to five.
The judging panel consists of optical communications technology developers, users, and market analysts with years of experience in specifying, designing and evaluating fiber-optic communications technology. They operate independently of the Lightwave staff.
Lightwave will announce the scores of entries that receive a rating of at least 3.5 at OFC 2017.
The early-bird deadline for submissions is October 17 and the final submission deadline is November 10.
