Research and Markets: 400 G, OTN and Next-Generation Transport: A Market and Technology Forecast - 2014 Report Out Now

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/v25w28/400_g_otn_and) has announced the addition of the "400 G, OTN and Next-Generation Transport: A Market and Technology Forecast" report to their offering.

Carriers worldwide are outgrowing 100 G transport networks and taking first steps towards 400 G backbones. The author believes these ultra-fast networks will create major new revenue opportunities for optical components firms, silicon chipmakers and equipment companies alike. This new business will come from volume deployments of 400 G networks themselves. It will also emerge from radical new directions in modulation, amplification, and multiplexing technology that will create openings for companies with novel WDM/OTN platforms of all kinds.

Many questions remain. How many carriers will jump to 400 G immediately? Which ones will be satisfied with 200 G cores for a few years, before shifting to 400 G transport networks? Which enabling technologies are available and will be deployed by equipment firms to make 400 G possible? And how will these equipment suppliers design their next-generation routers and switches to make them 400 G ready?

This report provides a complete opportunity analysis and roadmap for 400 G transport, including an assessment of innovations such as superchannels and the latest modulation schemes, and the role of coherent and Raman technology, as well as the emerging standards framework for 400 G from the ITU and OIF. Based on this analysis, we identify the key capabilities that will be needed in next-generation core network platforms and how they are most likely to be provided. The report also includes a granular eight-year forecast of the 400 G core market with breakouts by type of technology and network segment.
