Drew Perkins, Infinera

Drew Perkins co-founded and serves as CTO for Infinera. Previously, Mr. Perkins was a founder of and served as the CTO for both OnFiber Communications and Lightera Networks. OnFiber developed some of the worlds largest metro DWDM networks and recently merged with Qwest Communications. Lightera developed the CoreDirector optical switch and merged with ciena. The CoreDirector is currently deployed at many of the worlds tier 1 carriers. Mr. Perkins has also served as Vice Chairman of the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) Technical Committee from its inception through its first year of operation. Mr. Perkins was the principal architect of several TCP/IP, ATM, Ethernet hardware and software products and protocols at FORE Systems, Inc. Throughout his career, Mr. Perkins has participated extensively in standards bodies including the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), IEEE, ATM Forum, OIF and ANSI. Mr. Perkins has 25 years of industry involvement and is well known for authoring the PPP Protocol. Drew earned a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University in 1986.

Ross Saunders, Stratalight

Ross Saunders has 15 years experience in development and product management of high speed optical transmission technology. Ross joined StrataLight in August 2003. Prior to joining StrataLight, Ross led Product Management at a ULH start-up company, Ceyba Inc. and Pirelli Optical Systems (purchased by Cisco Systems in 1999). From 1992 thru 1998, Ross worked on OC-192 DWDM system development at Nortel Networks in the UK and Canada, from initial concept through to final product verification. He also worked on advanced research in 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s transmission, optical regeneration and nonlinear fiber optics. Ross graduated from Napier University, Scotland with a B Eng (Hons, 1st class) in Communication and Electronic Engineering, has authored over 80 technical papers and has 16 US patents granted in the field of optical communications
Gary Nicholl, Cisco Systems.
Abstract: Next-generation optical transport technology must cost-effectively scale to support IP core growth rates ranging from 50-100% CAGR depending on the carrier network. To support this high growth rate, new approaches to optical transport technology are being actively pursued to deliver this level of network scalability at an affordable cost to service and content providers. This panel will discuss different approaches to solving this challenge, such as the use of photonic ICs, integration of DWDM into IP routers and the use of advanced optical modulation schemes.
