Applications Engineer, Advanced Technologies and Solutions
Kevin has been with EXFO for 18 years and has been involved in the telecom industry for 29 years. Starting in excavation as a laborer, Kevin traded in his shovel for a backhoe laying cable across the US. He later worked for a Tier 1 service provider as a splicer and tester, working on new installs and disaster recovery. Kevin became an Operations technician, turning up and maintaining DS1 to 10G systems. Leveraging this field experience, Kevin delivers a unique perspective which shows in his educational approach when delivering expert content through webinars or seminars.
Technologies like 5G and cloud services have fueled a tremendous increase in bandwidth demand. Installation of high-count fiber and an increase in bandwidth to 100G+ have helped meet some requirements, but to fully meet unsatisfied demand, advanced technologies like dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) must be deployed. DWDM has long been a technology used on backbone transport but it’s now pushing out into the metro environment to feed bandwidth-hungry services.
Front line technicians and contractors who install, maintain, and troubleshoot metro services today will need to prepare for advanced technologies like DWDM.
