He is continuously working with customers as a technical advisor for testing high speed systems and troubleshooting 5G performance. François is involved with product definition and guidance at EXFO for Ethernet and optical transport solutions. He regularly contributes as a speaker in various seminars and webinars. François graduated in electrical engineering from Polytechnique Montreal.
This webinar gives an overview of the OTN multiplexing signal structures and their benefits. It explores an efficient way to validate all optical demultiplexer unit (ODU) channels simultaneously.
There has been a lot of pressure and discussion around the increasing use of optical transport networks (OTN) within the carrier’s environment; this is due to the increased demand for higher bandwidth where OTN offers efficient traffic grooming and optimal granularity. OTN’s flexibility makes it the main client transport mechanism today, especially up to 100G.
This webinar gives an overview of the OTN multiplexing signal structures and their benefits. It explores an efficient way to validate all optical demultiplexer unit (ODU) channels, using a new high-granularity OTN multichannel application capable of monitoring all sub channels simultaneously up to OTU4.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- High-speed OTN 100G networks muxponder and transponder testing and grooming of diversified OTN mapping structures as required in high-speed networks
- A new capability that allows optimal detection and monitoring of multiple OTN channels, removing the need to characterize each individual channel and reducing testing time
