Dr. Suresh Subramaniam, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and GW’s Vice Provost for Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs, is a world-renowned leader in the area of fiber-optic networks, which has been the predominant technology deployed in the backbone of the Internet for decades. He was invited to share his expertise during a three-part lecture on optical networks as part of the Peking University School of Electronics’ Distinguished Lecture Series. 

The lectures were titled, “An Introduction to Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and Elastic Optical Networks,” “Resource Allocation in Elastic Optical Networks,” and “Optical Data Center Networks.” Altogether, they introduced the audience to optical networking as well as the latest issues in research on optical core networks and data center networks. Subramaniam says the audience, consisting of faculty and doctoral students, was very engaged with the presentations.

“It is always a pleasure to share our research with others, particularly young researchers such as doctoral students and early-career researchers. The distinguished lecture series was a wonderful opportunity to do so,” Subramaniam stated.
