Considerable research was done using the Internet. Information from various Web sites was studied and analyzed; evaluation of publicly available marketing and technical publications was also conducted. Telephone conversations and interviews were held with industry analysts, technical experts and executives. In addition to these interviews and primary research, secondary sources were used to develop a more complete mosaic of the market landscape, including industry and trade publications, conferences and seminars.
The overriding objective throughout the work has been to provide valid and relevant information. This has led to a continual review and update of the information content.
This report analyzes a complicated landscape of high-speed (40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s) optical systems. It targets service providers, vendors, network operators and managers, Enterprise IT staff, investors and end users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of the gradual migration various types of the network towards such high - speeds transmission.
End users can also gain a more detailed understanding of product' s market and their capabilities; as well as the economics of these technologies products to improve cost efficiency of communications.
This issue of the report reflects dynamics of the high-speed optical transmission systems technologies and markets and provides up to date analysis of their benefits and issues; it continues the Practel project in the analysis of high-speed optical communications.
At the present time, the industry is witnessing the rising interest for high-speed communications; and the advent of 40 Gb/s pipes in carrier networks has finally arrived. 100 Gb/s systems wide commercialization is expected in a few years. Besides traditional applications, there are many new applications for such high-speed communications (for example establishing connections between peta-scale systems, or modernizing SAN systems).
2007 was the first year when sizable volume of 40 Gb/s units was shipped by the industry. The emergence of 40G POS interfaces for backbone routers lead to the popularity of WDM backbone transportation systems based on the single-channel 40G technology. Most mainstream operators in Europe, America, and Japan have begun planning or deploying long - haul backbone networks and backbone MANs. AT&T, NTT, TransTeleCom, Telefonica, and Verizon have already constructed 40 Gb/s networks and are offering commercial services. DT, Swisscom, and FT are planning theirs; and China Telecom is deploying its 40 Gb/s network connecting Shanghai to Wuxi.
2007-2008 also were years of field testing 100 Gb/s systems. For example, Verizon completed the first field test of 100 Gb/s optical transmission on a live, in-service 312-mile network route between Tampa, Fl. and Miami. In 2009, Verizon put in service the first 100 Gb/s link in France.
There are several factors in re-discovering attractiveness of such transmission; the most important from them are:
Among areas the most demanding for high-speed communications systems are Internet data and entertainment traffic, such as HD and SHD format signals that require significant bandwidth (measured in Gb/s) for each wired household.
Though the industry has not reached the level of fiber bandwidth exhaustion, there are regions with critical values (of 65%-70% of fiber plant utilization) and carriers are looking for alternatives to laying new fiber.
In 2010, the IEEE ratified the 802.3ba standard; this assured vendors and providers that high-speed communications is on track to wide commercialization. The ITU is making progress in extension of the ONT development (ODU4); OIF as well as other organizations are also actively working to develop standardized high-speed transmission.
Based on these factors, the authors of this report analyzed the development of the high-speed communications industry with the emphasis on:
The report addresses these and other related issues; it shows that 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s fiber optics communications is today reality; and, depending on the global economy conditions, these systems proliferation is expected in the 2012-2014 time frame.
