Subject Matter Expert

François Marcotte is a Senior Applications Engineer currently working at EXFO in Montreal, Canada. With more than 28 years in the telecommunication industry, he began his career at Bell Canada as an installer and repair man. He was involved in QAM HFC system design and integration in early 90’s.

Over the years, François has developed strong knowledge on Ethernet, MPEG, OTN and optical transport. He is continuously working with customers as a technical advisor for Ethernet, optical transport testing, performances test procedure and training. François is involved with product definition at EXFO for Ethernet and optical transport product. He is also a regular speaker in various seminars in North America.

François graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, as an Electrical Engineer.


The 5G network architecture requires slicing to efficiently deliver various services within a single network. Each slice will use some of the network’s shared resources to deliver a specific service with a specific service-level agreement (SLA) to specific devices. Different slices will be required for low latency, maximum throughput and massive IOT services, just to name a few.

In addition, FlexE (flexible Ethernet) can be implemented to achieve low latency slicing and assign the necessary dynamic bandwidth required for certain applications like live sporting events. The FlexE technology will adjust service bandwidth based on data usage and speed requirements without over-provisioning the network. FlexE bandwidth connectivity can be scaled up or down, as per service requirements.

In this webinar, we will cover 5G network slicing concepts, the basics of FlexE technology and how you can monetize your 5G network, slice by slice.

Key takeaways:

  • Overview of network slicing
  • Understanding FlexE technology
  • Role of FlexE in efficient network slicing
