Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer (ROADM): A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Packet-optical transport systems, offering efficient bandwidth across networks, have been registering notable growth fuelled by dire need to address rapidly increasing data and video traffic. Factors such as increased social networking activity, data center virtualization, file sharing, video downloads, cloud computing, online gaming are generating massive volumes of network traffic, all of which are required to be transported through metro optical or long-haul networks. Additionally, an immense amount of data generated from the Internet of Things is further expected to amplify network traffic in the coming years. Technologies that have been driving global network traffic include UltraHD, cloud computing, 4G LTE, Wifi offload, Internet video including Netflix and YouTube, and Web 2.0. Major Web 2.0 companies and cloud environments are deploying 40G and 100G coherent networks on a large scale. Furthermore, growing adoption of high speed networks for SAS, Infiniband, Ethernet, PCIe and Fiber Channel is driving robust need for increased optical connectivity. As a result, the network carrier market has been witnessing a shifting trend towards 100G coherent transmission networks to facilitate reliable and quick service provisioning, and improved bandwidth.

Router, which is used to connect information to the transport layer, is being replaced by a blend of packet and optical technologies. Besides facilitating effective data transportation through the network, packet and optical technologies also serve as the most cost-effective alternate solution to address issues related to heavy network traffic. As a result, Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer ROADM, a type of packet-optical transport system, has been gaining huge popularity. Router bypass technology is witnessing strong adoption rates among service providers owing to its ability to offer capex savings. Router bypass technology enables service providers to transmit specific types of traffic across Layer 2 optical transport systems, thus evading the use of several high cost Layer 3 router hops in core routing networks, and lowering network costs. Additionally, router bypass technique offers efficient network transport and improved port utilization.
