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.


Over the last 2 years, 100-gigabit Ethernet has been deployed over optical transport network (OTN) systems and distributed over DWDMs. Now is the time to test it all. However, two key questions arise:

  • What tests should be performed?
  • How long should the tests last?  

This webinar addresses the appropriate testing method for high-speed networks. Based on industry standards and forums, EXFO is proposing a simple, yet complete test methodology that should help today’s network operators.




Thank you.
