New LIGHTWAVE ONE Conference to Collocate With ITEXPO West 2010 in Los Angeles LIGHTWAVE Brings Optical Communications Conference for Service Providers and Enterprises to Popular International Communications Event

NASHUA, N.H., May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- LIGHTWAVE, the leading media provider of technical insights for optical communications professionals (www.lightwaveonline.com), today announced that its new Optical Networks for Enterprises (ONE) Conference and Expo Pavilion will be collocated with ITEXPO West 2010 (www.itexpo.com), October 4-6, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

LIGHTWAVE's ONE Conference (www.lightwaveonline.com/lightwaveone) is the only event exclusively focused on real-world optical communications strategies for network owners, managers and service providers. The ONE Conference provides a unique educational and networking opportunity for enterprise and service provider managers who are evaluating, implementing and managing fiber-optic networks.

LIGHTWAVE's ONE Conference focuses specifically on solutions to service providers' and enterprises' rapidly expanding bandwidth and network cost challenges. With a 25-year track record of excellence in explaining the technologies, strategies and products for building, maintaining and upgrading optical networks, LIGHTWAVE is uniquely positioned to bring together thought leaders who can provide practical advice to optical networking decision makers.

According to Susan Smith, publisher of LIGHTWAVE, "Collocating the ONE Conference with ITEXPO offers great synergies because of this event's history of focusing on technologies that allow service providers and enterprises to improve communications network speed and efficiency. Now that these decision makers are looking more closely at fiber-optic technology than ever before, because of its greater bandwidth carrying capacity and unmatched service flexibility, it makes a lot of sense to partner with ITEXPO to add LIGHTWAVE's optical event to its lineup." Hosted by Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), ITEXPO is "The world's Communications Conference." Launched in 1999, the conference and trade show draw influential decision makers from enterprises, carriers, developers, resellers and government agencies, all seeking communications and technology solutions.

Show management estimates a minimum of 7,500 attendees for the conference in Los Angeles.

"Strengthening its position as the world's leading business communications conference, TMC is very pleased to have added LIGHTWAVE's ONE Conference to this year's ITEXPO West in Los Angeles. The subject matter is a perfect fit for the conference program, and visitors to the expo floor will undoubtedly appreciate the chance to meet with the industry's leading optical communications systems vendors in one place," said Rich Tehrani, ITEXPO West 2010 Conference Chairman.

"Our team looks forward to working hand-in-hand with LIGHTWAVE to create a valuable experience for all exhibitors and attendees." A call for papers for the LIGHTWAVE ONE Conference has been issued, and abstracts from speakers interested in participating in the conference are due to Stephen Hardy, Editorial Director & Associate Publisher, by May 31.
