400 G, OTN and Next-Generation Transport: A Market and Technology Forecast

DUBLIN, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jxd99k/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 400G 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?

The answers to these questions will shape where and how the money will be made in the next few years in optical transport business. In this new report the author provides these answers, drawing on the evidence that is emerging from the slew of recent 400 G trials, as well as the plans by the leading systems firms.

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.
