Stephan Neidlinger discusses evolution of high-speed interfaces in disaggregated open networks

Netnod presentation to demonstrate value of multi-layer, multi-vendor management and orchestration

  • Speaker: Stephan Neidlinger, VP, strategic alliance management, ADVA
  • Topics: Evolution of high-speed interfaces in disaggregated open networks
  • When: Thursday, March 15, 11:30 a.m.
  • Where: Netnod Meeting 2018, Sheraton Stockholm Hotel, Stockholm, Sweden

Many see full network disaggregation as the ultimate tool to increase flexibility and free operators from dependence on vendors. But partial disaggregation can also go a long way to reducing effort and cost.

In this presentation, Stephan Neidlinger will show how high-speed interfaces and higher order modulation need to be supported by open optical line systems. He will also outline how multi-layer and multi-vendor orchestration and management are key.
