Finisar Welcomes You at SuperComputing 2009

Next week Finisar will eagerly join the SuperComputing 2009 coterie in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Now in its 22nd year, SC09 is the premier conference and exhibition on high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. With more than 11,000 expected attendees, it is an industry event not to be missed.

While there will be much to do at SC09, I whole heartedly invite you to join the Finisar Welcome Reception at our booth #1812 from 7-9pm on Monday, November 16th. There will be plenty of refreshments and great conversation to go around, not to mention a special drawing for an iPOD.

During the exhibition, we especially look forward to sharing with you the latest technology developments and booth demonstrations of our cable family including Laserwire® for 10GbE, Quadwire™ for 40GbE and InfiniBand QDR, and C.wire™ for 100GbE and InfiniBand QDR.

On Wednesday, November 18th, 5:30pm to 7:00pm, be sure to join me at the Birds-of-a-Feather Session on Solving Interconnect Bottle Necks with Optical Technologies. Hosted by Marek Tlalka of Luxtera, this exciting topic will discuss the demands for bandwidth intensive services and explore distinct approaches in solving this bottleneck problem.

On Thursday, November 19th at 1:30pm, be sure to stop by Mellanox booth #1301 for my presentation on the “Convergence of cabling options in InfiniBand and Ethernet environments”.

See you at the show!
