Tony Frisch | Chief Technical Officer

Tony Frisch, Chief Technical Officer, Xtera

Tony joined Xtera in 2004 initially managing Marketing and Proposals for terminal equipment and upgrades and then responsible for products such as Repeaters and Branching Units, and now serves as CTO. Tony started work at BT’s Research labs investigating cable problems and then moved to Alcatel Australia, becoming involved in testing and commissioning submarine systems.  A move to Bell Labs gave him experience in terminal design and troubleshooting, after which he went back to Alcatel France, where he worked in Alcatel Submarine Networks’ Technical Sales before moving to head Product Marketing.

Workshop 2: Averting the capacity crunch - Demystifying how design constraints will challenge design capacity growth assumptions

For decades, there has been the assumption that due to technological optimisations, cable systems will be able to perform comfortably beyond original design parameters.  Those days are changing.  This workshop will discuss the extent to which the previous assumptions about the expansion of System Design Capacity will be challenged by physical design constraints (e.g. Shannon), how developing error correction methods will get us ever closer to those limits, and look beyond the previous design paradigm to the evolving system design strategies that will be needed to fulfil ever growing market demand for submarine cable capacity.
