Bruno Giguère

Senior Product Line Manager, EXFO

As Sr. Advisor, he is instrumental in analyzing market dynamics and implementing corresponding technical strategies for the Transport and Service Assurance Division. He is EXFO’s representative to many standard organizations including the Metro Ethernet Forum, the International Telecommunication Union and the Broadband Forum. Mr. Giguère is also the Canadian National Study Group Chairman for ITU-T Study Group 12 and the current Editor of ITU-T  Y.1564 and MEF 48. Mr. Giguère holds a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the École de technologie supérieure in Montréal, Canada.

In the last 12 months, we have seen multiple trials for 200G and 400G transmission worldwide on both client and line sides, which have presented multiple challenges. At this moment, new technologies and standards are being developed by groups, such as ITU, IEC, OIF, IEEE, to meet beyond 100G network requirements.  This webinar will review the potential technologies enabling transmission beyond 100G and the expected challenges related to deployment and testing, with a particular focus on long-haul and metro requirements.

Join Simon Poole, Director, New Business Ventures at Finisar, and François Robitaille, Group Manager at EXFO, for this webinar to learn about:

  • Potential approaches and modulation schemes allowing 400G transmission
  • Flexgrid and superchannels
  • Nyquist filtering
  • Spectral testing and channel definition.
  • A brief review of the status and progress in the various Standards group
