LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Accumold’s expertise is on display this week as the company takes its place among exhibitors at the 2011 Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference, known in the industry as the OFC/NFOEC.

“The OFC/NFOEC may look like letters in an alphabet soup, but each year it spells ‘opportunity’ for our company. Simply put, it’s the world’s leading international conference for optical communications and networking professionals,” said Accumold vice president of sales and marketing Paul Runyan. “More than 500 companies and 9,700 professionals attended the 2010 OFC/NFOEC – and this year’s conference is expected to be bigger and better. It’s an exceptional opportunity to see and be seen by the top performers and innovators in the optical communications sector.”

The event is co-sponsored by The Optical Society, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Photonics Society and Communications Society. This year’s theme is “the future of optical communications is here.”
