Fixed Access Network Sharing (FANS), a new way to share the access network through virtualization.
Senior solution architect, R&D department of Fixed Networks, Nokia
François's focus is on defining and exploiting innovative features in access technologies and platforms (DSL and PON), encompassing the full system from the physical layer through Ethernet/IP/MPLS, and right up to the management and application-aware level. Over the course of his career he has contributed to several technical standardization efforts (GPON in FSAN, Carrier Ethernet in MEF, IP sessions in BBF, Reverse powering in ETSI). He has analyzed the technical implications on the ISAM product line of the unfolding regulation on Virtual Unbundling and Bitstream flavours. He is currently focusing on 10G PON technologies (NG-PON2, XGS-PON) and their applications.
