Data center and DCI optics: a look ahead

Hosted by

Sophie Legault

Director Business Unit High-Speed & T&D

Sophie Legault has a solid foundation in the telecommunications industry with over 15 years of experience. She currently holds the position of Director - Transport & Datacom Business Unit.

Sophie began her career as a Network Specialist for Stentor, the once cross-country network operator for Canadian ILECs. She then expanded her experience as a Systems Engineer for Nortel Networks’ optical Internet product line. Sophie has accumulated a solid background in both telecom and datacom network applications.

She holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from École Polytechnique de Montreal as well as an MBA from École des Hautes Études Commerciales in Montreal.

With escalating bandwidth requirements inside and between data centers, operators are looking closely at ways to solve the data center optics challenge: high-capacity, low-cost, energy-efficient optics that can be quickly and easily tested and deployed within an operating environment.

A wide range of solutions has been proposed by the industry to meet these requirements, and as a result, the data center optics market has become increasingly fragmented and challenging to navigate.  Supporting all these different reach, form factors, and lane technologies is especially challenging for transceiver vendors as well as test and measurement solution providers.

Join EXFO and Fujitsu for this webinar to learn more about:

  • What’s ahead for direct detect and coherent 100GbE, 200GbE, 400GbE, and beyond. 
  • How flexible rate transceivers over flex grid networks including ROADMs are being used to economically increase capacity and groom DCI traffic.
  • How flexible test and measurement solutions reduce operational complexity and future-proof capital investments.
Who Should Attend
DCOs, ICPs, Tier 1 and 2 service providers, cloud service providers, MSOs, government, datacom and DCI transceiver vendors, network equipment manufacturers. Financial analysts and the media are also encouraged to attend.
