Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Industry analyst firm CIR today announced the addition of a new report to its schedule titled, "Next-Generation Ethernet: From 100 Gbps to 400 Gbps and Beyond" that will be issued in November 2013. CIR presents in this report our 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.
About the Report:
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.
CIR has been tracking the commercial development of Ethernet since 1991, when the now-ubiquitous GigE technology was the avant-garde. We have subsequently analyzed every generation of Ethernet all the way to 100 Gbps. So we understand user needs, technology requirements and deployment patterns. And we are especially adept at identifying the commercial opportunities flowing from the latest developments in optical Ethernet.
Based on this more than two decades, CIR presents in this report our 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 CIR believes will be the key players in this space.
