Jean-Sébastien Tassé

Product Manager

Jean-Sébastien Tassé has more than 13 years of experience in sales and marketing in the high-tech sector. He currently holds the position of Product Line Manager in EXFO’s optical business unit, where he oversees the business strategy, roadmap and launch strategy of the optical spectrum analyzer and dispersion product lines. At EXFO, he is also business development manager for the market segments of submarine networks and fronthaul/backhaul networks (optical products). He began his career as Sales Engineer for Gentec Electro-Optics, where he was responsible for direct and channel sales in specific regions in the Americas, Asia and Europe. As Business Development Manager for the Thin Film Research Laboratory at the École Polytechnique de Montréal/University of Montreal, he was instrumental in delivering revenue growth in analytical services for companies. Jean-Sébastien holds a bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics and a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering (optics) from Université Laval, in Québec City, Canada.

The fastest way to shrink your operational expenses and start generating revenue is to find the fastest way to test and turn up services. Sometimes it’s as simple as eliminating unnecessary or redundant steps in the process. A long-standing method for testing new services and troubleshooting existing ones is the bit error rate test. It's also the most time consuming, often requiring two or more cycles of 12- to 24-hour testing and monitoring. Imagine being able to reduce that time by a half or more. Test and service assurance solutions providers have found ways to do this, such as using a combination of optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) testing and BER testing.

In this webinar, our speaker demonstrates, using the math, that there is a better option to standard BER testing. Viewers will learn:

  • The symbiotic relationship between OSNR and BER
  • Why at least some BER testing might be redundant
  • How OSNR testing can predict the success (and therefore the need) of a BER test
  • How streamlining this process saves opex
  • How you can get to the troubleshooting stage much quicker if needed
