Peter Stassar
Peter Stassar has previously held positions as a Senior Optical Product Manager on FTTH CPEs at Genexis in the Netherlands, and has been a Senior Application and System Engineer for optical interface specifications and applications for PDH, SDH, OTN, DWDM, PON equipment, having worked at Lucent Technologies, AT&T and Philips Telecom. He has also consulted with Finisar Co. for ITU-T representation.

Since 2006, Stassar has been recognized as Rapporteur of Q.6 in ITU-T SG15, "Characteristics of optical systems for terrestrial transport networks”, and has participated in Q.6. Editor of Recommendations G.664 (optical safety), G.693 (very short distances optical interface specifications), G.695 (CWDM optical interface specifications), and in IEEE 802.3: 100G and 400G client side optical interface specifications. He was graduated from MSEE Eindhoven University of Technology.

Optical transport networks (OTN) are always pursuing higher capacity and lower cost as the bandwidth increases are not reflected in operator’s revenues.

Compared to the 100G or prior eras, a key feature “flex” will play a more important role to enhance network flexibility and efficiency, such as flex channel with configurable Modulation format to realize the greatest potential of each fiber link and network dynamics.

Join us for this interactive webinar. Key discussion points will include:

  • the evolution of transport network and technologies;
  • the challenges and key technologies for 100G beyond;
  • the key enablers of elastic transport network for 100G beyond;
  • how elastic transport network benefit operators;

The future is now; this can’t miss webinar will show you the key technologies, features and benefits of future optical networks.
