Monday 7th December - Session 2 16:00 – 16:20 Juniper Networks Automation and Autonomous Network solution in Cloud Native architecture: user stories and practical examples of deployment Speaker: Domenico Di Mola, VP of Engineering

17:00 – 17:20 Acacia Communications A Path to Next Generation Coherent Speaker: Tom Williams, Vice President of Marketing Today’s coherent solutions address a wide range of applications from the network edge to submarine. Embedded modules designed for multi-haul applications utilize common hardware and programmable DSPs with flexible shaping features and performance that approaches the Shannon limit. Pluggable coherent implementations tend to be more optimized for power and density to address higher volume market segments. In edge and metro applications, architectures based on these two approaches compete with one another. Some believe broader adoption will drive pluggable coherent solutions toward longer reach applications, as well. The presentation will look at these trends and discuss how it impacts development of next generation coherent solutions. 2020 OIF Transport SDN API Interoperability Demo Speaker: Arturo Mayoral Lopez, Ph.D., Technology Expert, Transport Networks, Global CTIO, Telefonica Learn how OIF and member network operators are accelerating the commercialization of transport SDN worldwide and transport network transformation for the 5G era with this latest interoperability demo. Hear about the findings of the demo that brought new use cases and deployment scenarios into Telefonica’s lab to test multi-vendor interoperability of Layer 1 OTN, Layer 0 OTN control using ONF T-API 2.1.3 and OpenConfig device APIs. Understand how open Transport SDN APIs: • Improve network agility to adapt to dynamic service demands and traffic patterns • Improve service provisioning and time-to-revenue • Reduce maintenance and management with simplified control and automation 17:20 – 17:40 OIF

16:20 – 16:40 Ciena Paving the way for plug and play: Management and control of coherent optical pluggables Speaker: Ian Alderdice, Software Lead, Ciena Optical Microsystems Management interfaces are the glue between plug and host platform and they pre-date the emergence of coherent technology in pluggable form factors. The enhancements in link performance, operational ease of use and advanced telemetry that coherent technology offers for optical networking has meant upgrades were needed for coherent pluggable management interfaces. Considerations for both hardware and software aspects were required to define the OIF 400ZR C-CMIS, or Coherent-Common Management Interface Specification. As coherent pluggables become more feature-rich and complex, the ability to support multi-vendor interoperability, seamlessly integrate them into host platforms and provision optical links is going to place still further demands on the specification of management interfaces. This session reviews the evolution of optical modules, introduces the progress made with C-CMIS to date and how it will apply to real-world deployments of 400ZR, as well as exploring the challenges ahead for defining the next generation of coherent pluggable management interfaces. 16:40 – 17:00 Huawei Technologies Optical Intelligence: Path to Network Operations Enhancement and Automation Speaker: Dr. Christopher Janz, Technical Vice President & Director, Optical Systems Competency Centre Increased instrumentation of the optical network, combined with extensive transmission performance modeling, is opening the path to more robust network performance, improved resource utilization and automation. We review advances in instrumentation, optical modeling and management-control and planning platforms, highlighting leading use cases and the resulting operator gains.

18:00 – 18:20 LightCounting Market Research The COVID-19 Pandemic has Accelerated the Adoption of Cloud Services Speaker: Dr. Vladimir Kozlov, Founder and CEO, LightCounting Market Research

Investments by Cloud companies in mega datacenters and their supporting networking infrastructure have created a new and very dynamic segment in the optical components and modules market. This presentation will detail the impact of Mega Datacenters on the market for Ethernet optical transceivers, DWDM optics, Active Optical Cables (AOCs) and Embedded Optical Modules (EOMs). It will leverage extensive historical data on shipments of these products, combined with market analyst research, to make projections for the market in 2020-2025. The presentation will provide an overview on historical shipments data and projections for 2.5G, 10G, 100G, 200G, 400G DWDM ports and several types of AOCs/EOMs.
