On July 17 and 18, 2019 the VITA-VSO meeting was held in Montreal with Reflex Photonics acting as host.
Over 30 attendees met at Hôtel Montville, a stone throw from Old Montreal, to further the VITA agenda. David Rolston, Senior Technology Advisor from Reflex Photonics presented new advances in blind mate interconnect solutions, including plug-in module and backplane module connectors for VITA aperture 66.4 and 67.3 to add to the new 66.5 standard under completion.
From R&D to R&R
In the evening of the 17th Reflex Photonics organized a diner and cruise on the St-Lawrence river. The cruise took Reflex guests to the best vantage point to appreciate the 35th edition of L’International des Feux Loto-Québecfireworks competition where Montreal’s skies were lit up by the world’s greatest pyrotechnic artists. That night it so happened the United States was competing with the theme “Spirit of the Jungle”.
Michel Têtu, Industry Manager for Standardization commented:
The atmosphere, the meal, the cruise, the fireworks were simply “gorgeous”. All our guests were delighted and warmly thanked us. They will remember this remarkable evening for a long time.
In the afternoon of the 18th, Reflex Photonics invited the VSO meeting attendees to visit its newly expanded installations where they were able to observe the cutting-edge research and production equipment used to design and manufacture the next generation of rugged optical transceivers.
