Close to the Edge: Fibre for any-haul in 5G access networks
– Dr. DeChao Zhang, China Mobile
– Andrew Lord, Senior Manager of Optical Research at BT.
– Stéphane Téral, Chief Analyst, LightCounting Market Research
– David Binder, Business Development Manager Data Networking, Yamaichi Electronics Deutschland
– Stefan Dahlfort, Product Development Leader, Ericsson
About this webinar
The webinar will bring together key companies that are influencing the direction of the technology, products, and manufacturing. The goal is to review what is hot and topical today but also with a view on the next 5-10 years as enablers to maintain competitiveness in the segment. Included will be perspectives on standards/MSA as well as the market environment.
Already, we are seeing key metrics such as high volume, integration, low power consumption, high speed, electronic enhancement and support of photonics (coding, FEC, dispersion, timing etc) with DSPs to name a few; become important to all stakeholders up and down the value chain of the industry. Further, as everything advances as we would expect, the make-up and nature of the industry will evolve quickly and these webinars will review not only the technology perspective but also how the industry can meet future challenges and opportunities over the next decade.
We will complete the webinar with a panel session of the speakers and provide thoughtful questions by the moderator/session chair on issues both today and in the near future.
Managing the Fibre Network
– Antonio Tartaglia, Ericsson
– Dr. Di Liang, HPE
– Junjie Li, Ph.D, China Telecom Research Institute
– Ed Ulrichs, Director of Product Line Management, Intel’s Silicon Photonics group (SPPD)
About this webinar
With the mass migration to fibre, new network management systems and practices are going to be required. In addition, fibre network architecture is still developing and there are some potentially radical changes in the pipeline which could redefine network management so inevitably, the questions arise, which management systems to invest in and how far to automate? In the all-copper environment, automation is well advanced, but how easily will it transfer to fibre networks? How will fault monitoring and trouble ticketing work? There will also be new traffic patterns due to sheer mobility i.e. how to automatically learn about them and how to automatically both indirectly (planning) and directly (provisioning)?
Replacing the copper infrastructure
– Philippe Chanclou, Team manager “Fixed access network” at Orange Labs
– Tracey Vanik, Head of Photonic Market Research at EPIC-Assoc.com
– Leesa Noujeim, Signal Integrity Engineer, Google
– Dr. Peng (Mike) Li, Intel Fellow and the technologist for high-speed I/O and interconnects, Intel Corporation
About this webinar
Switching to a new physical infrastructure is probably the biggest step any operator will take, but if they are to meet their subscribers’ demands for greater speed, capacity and new services, as well as supporting 5G and IoT. It is a step which may be taken. The process is however fraught with uncertainties. How to do it in the most cost-efficient manner with minimum disruption to customers? When to expect RoI and how can it be generated? What will OPEX be like? Cloud data centres still represents one of the largest instalment base of copper and optical cables leading latest developments in term of growth rate and the adoption of higher speeds. What are the opportunities for new technologies such as hollow-core fibre, 200G per lane copper cable etc?
