The fast approaching 100G era

Infonetics Research

The 100 Gigabit era is approaching fast as carriers ‘reboot' their optical networks.

When 100G coherent component technology prices come down to not more than twice that of 40G technology, there will be a rapid switchover to 100G transmission when it becomes widely available in 2013.

Once this transition is underway, vendors will differentiate themselves not by the availability of 100G technology, but more by the ability to tame these fat pipes with effective switching technology, whether that be OTN switching or full-blown IP/MPLS switching.
