The Langmatz Broadband Symposium + Open House, March 15-16, 2017

16/03/2017
The sixth Langmatz Broadband Symposium and Open House again broke all records and has established itself as an important industry gathering.

More than 400 participants from Germany and other European companies met in Garmisch-Partenkirchen to discuss exciting topics regarding the development of broadband networks and their marketing.


Top-class speakers gave presentations about the challenges during optical fibre connection from the central office to the subscriber, the operation of these networks and the exploitation of bandwidths through the use of WDM technology. The gaming industry talked about the exploding volumes of data caused by high-quality, interactive games. Further presentation topics included the current requirements for the IP core network and its developments for handling the increasing volumes of data from the access networks and the day of presentations was rounded off by a comparison of point-to-point with GPON networks.

On day 2, we held an Open House in our Oberau production plant with 19 partner companies from the industry. Here, visitors learned about all news regarding the set-up and operation of fibre optic networks. Langmatz GmbH presented its latest innovations as well. For example, the new optical distribution frame and central office optical distribution frame, as well as the compact optical distribution and termination box, which allow modular and cost-efficient network expansions.

In various workshops, participants received current information regarding the topic of network planning and measurement technology in the ”next-generation PON”. Guided tours of the production area of Langmatz GmbH and a demonstration of the static load hydraulic press for manholes in the equipment compartment highlighted the high quality standard of Langmatz products.

We would like to thank all visitors and the exhibiting partner companies for their participation in and organisation of these exciting days!

Yours sincerely,
Stephan Wulf
General Manager Langmatz GmbH
