    • Solution Provider Soundbite:We had a chat with Geoff Bennett, Director of Solutions andTechnology, Infinera at WDM 2012, about the latest trends anddevelopments in the optical industry. Here’s what he had to say:How are Super-Channels the answer to the question How do large-scale PICs allow smaller, lower power and How does integrated OTN switching make more“what comes after 100G DWDM”? more reliable implementation? capacity available for revenue generating services?

Ibrahim GedeonWhat are the key themes at the conference How is Telus delivering high-speed broadband What are the economics of, and how do you deal Chief Technology Officerthis year? networks? with, converged networks? TelusCloud is everywhere; it seems that if you don’t mention When starting Ethernet in the mid-90s, we never I believe the biggest economic factor is systems, andCloud you’re passé, but there’s some really good work provided anything but Ethernet, so ATM was only a standards on access, so if you think of Ethernet ason scalability and end-to-end service management for backbone technology, so we stopped that frame relay aggregating mobile internet traffic content, a lot of theCarrier Ethernet, which is really great, as well as lots of for our managed service and expanded Ethernet (as standards bodies that deal with content, with mobiletalk about Carrier Ethernet 2.0, so that’s been fun. managed Ethernet) from 1995, so now it represents our and with internet are not actually talking to each other, mobile backhaul, business solutions, IpTV and internet. as they come from different parts of the world. One ofI think one of the fundamental take-home messages Two things have happened: when you consolidate any the biggest challenges we’ve had is working on, fromis the fact that the MEF, with the conference, are technology you always get economies of scale, and an operations point of view, a single ownership of theworking on real practical solutions. The question is also Ethernet prices have outperformed anything else access/aggregation network (which is Ethernet), and‘what next’, and for some people, myself included, in terms of bit per second, so whether we’re lucky or that took a lot of cultural conditioning. The other factorwe’re committed from the CEO downwards. In some smart it’s been really good for Telus from a total cost of is investment in systems; if you’re not going to havecases Ethernet seems to be some small, dirty project ownership point of view. So that’s what we’ve done; our the systems leverage Ethernet the same way, fromfor some other carriers, so I wish my colleagues well in metro is Ethernet access, and our backbone is just a a networking point of view, you’re losing some of thepushing that through. standard backbone, so it’s been very good for us. economies of scale; we’ve had a lot of investment in that area, and I have to admit that my IT people are simply brilliant on that front.
