MARIETTA, Ga. and OTTAWA -- Optical networking specialist Optelian today launched the MPX-9110 flexible 100G platform. As the industry's most compact and efficient 100 Gb/s solution, the MPX-9110 provides comprehensive service-delivery capabilities in a standalone 1RU form factor. Configurable as either a muxponder or transponder, the MPX-9110 can aggregate and transport any mix of 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s services over a 100G OTN DWDM wavelength. When deployed in place of 10 Gb/s wavelengths, the MPX-9110 provides a tenfold increase in capacity per wavelength, enhancing ROI and deferring costly overbuilds. The platform also allows network operators to support new services, providing 40G and 100G over existing infrastructure engineered to support 10 Gb/s connections. "Internet usage, driven by bandwidth-intensive video streaming and enhanced user connectivity via multiple devices, will surge in the coming years. Operators need innovative ways to leverage their existing infrastructure while increasing capacity," remarks Optelian's CEO, David Weymouth. "Our analysis indicates 100G offers a 30% cost-per-bit savings relative to 10G transport strategies. Optelian's solution enables efficient scalability and supports the rapid deployment and management of new, revenue-generating services." Optelian

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.
