Sterling Perrin, Principal Analyst – Optical Networking & Transport, Heavy Reading

Scott Wilkinson, Senior Director, Portfolio Marketing, ECI Telecom

Physical integration of DWDM optics on IP routers has existed for many years in niche applications but has never taken off into mainstream adoption. While there is currently some resurgence in physical integration for shorter-reach metro data center interconnect (DCI) applications, many of the historical drawbacks remain. Heavy Reading research shows that the greater application, by far, is in keeping IP and optical layers physically separate but tightly coupling management and control. This new approach (network disaggregation) provides a host of benefits to operators while side-stepping the biggest challenges posed by physical integration.

This webinar provides a deeper look at multi-layer and multi-vendor IP and optical layer integration including both the technology enablers and the key applications and use cases driving operator demand. Topics will include:

  • Where does physical integration make sense in the network and where is it problematic?
  • What are the primary benefits of physical disaggregation of IP and optical layers?
  • What are the primary use cases and application for IP and optical integration via SDN?
  • What are some current real-world examples of operators using this type of architecture?
  • What are the key enabling hardware innovations for a flexible, agile optical layer?
  • Why is the northbound interface between controllers and orchestration/OSS so important for multi-vendor interoperability?

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.
