re: Photonic Integration -- Creating Smart, Flexible, Dynamic Networks

Nui!  these are some really huge claims!  Come on, your telling us that we can have cost-effective OEO at every node, integrated OTN switching? No way!  Greatly reduced space, power, labor, costs, wikiwiki sevice delivery, etc., all enabled by photonic integration!  You must think we're lohi.  And, if these benefits were to be realized, would have to be enabled by large-scale photonic integration! `A`ale!  That's not even remotely possible, as it would have to be done on InP. `A`ale i hea!  Wait a minute. Hasn't this already been solved by a vendor that has been deploying these systems for almost a decade.  And, not only in the metro, but in the long-haul and submarine segments too!  Kônane!  But even better, this, this how you say, photonic integrated device (aren't they really called circuits?), hasn't this already been done by a company in a totally prosocial way (none of their employees has been escorted off the tade show floor for taking pictures of OPT (other peoples technology)).  Also, this real vendor doesn't use OPM (other peoples money, in this case, state financing)  Oh, and, how crazy is this, they haven't been identified as a national security risk. It's just the network. Live and let spy.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
