As an added benefit to OIF Principal members, in March 2010 the Optical Internetworking Forum introduced the OIF Day Program – A live educational workshop program to expand awareness of, and educate member company employees on the work of the OIF. The OIF Day event is conducted on-site at network operator locations and/or vendor sites to reach and obtain inputs from a range of support functions, e.g. operations, network planning, network management, marketing, etc. It is custom-tailored to the needs of each hosting company and delivered in half or full-day sessions comprised of general sessions and tracks focused on Networking and/or Physical and Link Layer topics. The presenter-led sessions are conducted by hosting company reps and OIF reps and incorporate open discussion. These events strengthen member/executive support and help to establish an input and validation process for strategic/project planning.
