OPEX Reduction and Happy Customers: Save time, money and troubles in your fiber optic networks

Gwenn Amice

Subject Matter Expert, Physical layer and monitoring, EXFO

Gwenn Amice currently holds the position of Subject Matter Expert, Physical layer and monitoring with EXFO inc, which he joined in 2001. His main responsibilities consist of giving technical seminars, trainings, support and technical advices to EXFO’s customers.

After 2 years in the French Navy, Mr. Amice began his professional career in 1994 as an optoelectronics developer with a French subsidiary of Italian-based Pirelli Cavi Group.

During 6 years at Pirelli Optical System (now part of CISCO group) he was heavily involved in the WDM technology development, acting as Product Engineer, and project manager for DWDM deployment in Europe, Americas and Asia.

He left Europe for Canada in 2000, where he joined the Network Engineering Department at Videotron Telecom before joining EXFO in 2001.

Mr. Amice holds a university degree in electrical engineering and industrial computing and he is a member of the FTTH councils Americas Technology Committee.

In today’s competitive marketplace, where customer loyalty and retention is at risk, service providers need to maintain a high level of service and network reliability on a tighter budget.

In addition to negotiating the best prices on fiber/cable, infrastructure, transmission and test equipment on a day-to-day basis, solving network weaknesses is yet another way to reduce operation costs.

This 40-minute webinar explores the differences between a poor-quality network as compared to a solid and efficient network―and most importantly, how to optimize your own network efficiency. Topics discussed inthis webinar:

  • Fiber-optic Achilles’ heel: poor connections
  • A stressed network is not a good network: learn how to detect macrobends before they kill services
  • No plug and pray: qualify your fiber for high-speed upgradability
  • Fiber break—it happens, but how quickly can you react?
  • The quest for margin: optimize your OSNR for a few extra dBs that will make a difference
