Research and Markets: Next-Generation Ethernet Market Report

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/f68mm6/nextgeneration) has announced the addition of the "Next-Generation Ethernet Market Report" report to their offering.

With 40 GigE commonplace and 100 GigE no longer bleeding edge, optical networking is ready to embark on a quest for 400 GigE; perhaps an interim step on the way to Terabit Ethernet.

Based on this more than two decades of experience, the author presents in this report a view on how 400 GigE will be commercialized, how the 400 GigE business case will be made, and where the opportunities are to be found for carriers, equipment makers and component makers.

This report will make compelling reading for optical networking firms at the equipment, subsystem and component levels of the Ethernet value chain. The report contains a quantitative forecast over the next decade for 400 GigE under several different scenarios, along with an assessment of strategies of the firms that the author believes will be the key players in this space.

In this report, the author presents its view on where 400 GigE opportunities will be found for component makers, equipment firms and carriers. It focuses on demand from medium-to-large data centers, but also discusses how 400 GigE will play in metro networks and in WANs. Since 400 GigE will be a significant technological challenge, this report also discusses how the latest VCSEL, FEC and modulation technology will enable the new 400 GigE standard. Also covered are the likely module MSAs that will be used for 400 GigE.

The report also provides a strategic assessment of firms that will be the key players in 400 GigE space. Firms discussed in this report include: Arista, Avago, Brocade, Cisco, Extreme Networks, Facebook, Finisar, Furukawa, Google, IBM, JDSU, Juniper, Molex, Netflix, Sumitomo, TE Connectivity, ULM Photonics, and VI Systems.

Key Topics Covered:

Chapter One: Introduction

Chapter Two: Evolution of 400 GigE Technology

Chapter Three: Content-Related Drivers for 400 GigE Demand

Chapter Four: Potential Markets and Market Uncertainties for 400 GigE
