Overview of xWDM technologies—Part I

  • 2020年4月23日

Gwenn Amice

Subject Matter Expert

Gwenn Amice served in the French Navy before joining the Opto-electronic R&D telecom industry in 1995 aboard a startup that became the CISCO DWDM transport platform pillar.

As the development of new high-speed technologies evolved, he introduced new DWDM transport platforms in industrialization, production, customer demonstration and field deployment in Europe, Asia and Americas until he moved to Canada in 2000.

After a one-year experience as outside plant Engineer for Vidéotron in Montréal, he joined EXFO in 2001 as Subject Matter Expert, focusing on next generation optical networks and acting as a technical advisor to EXFO’s customers.

Since 2019 Gwenn Amice has been appointed Senior member of technical staff representing EXFO at industry standard events and interfacing with EXFO product development groups.

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

With the densification of data everywhere in the network (backbone, backhaul, middle-haul and fronthaul), using one fiber per service is not the best use of resources.

Multiplexing multiple services through the same fiber is more efficient in transporting data from point A to point B, while providing a sustainable and evolutive path moving forward.

Key takeaways:

  • The current array of WDM technologies
  • Key xWDM signal parameters that require testing

Stay tuned for Part II which will cover WDM applications in 5G optical access networks.



Thank you.
