The future of the Internet is coming to the San Diego Convention Center.
A convention devoted to high-speed fiber optic electronics runs Feb. 24-28.
New technology that will let more data slip quickly through the Internet will be one topic of conversation at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition. Since 2004, the conference has been combined with the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference.
High-speed Internet transmission over existing lines runs at 10 gigabits per second. The industry is working to reach speeds of 40 gigabits per second. Speeds of 100 gigabits per second and even 1,000 gigabits per second are under discussion.
Some 15,000 people are expected to attend the event, according to the San Diego Convention Center Corp., which manages and markets the Convention Center.
