CIR reports provide insight into the emerging opportunities in short-reach optical communications. Covering products, pricing, standards, new technologies and more, our reports are intended as an essential guide to input into marketing and business strategies.
This report provides an insider perspective on what’s next in the AOC business. It is strongly focused on business strategy and examines all the important marketing issues faced by the AOC market. The report also profiles all the leading suppliers of AOCs including established players, emergent Chinese vendors and the latest innovators, along with quantitative market shares of the AOC market leaders. Finally, the report includes ten-year volume and value forecasts, broken out by data rate, MSA, networking standards, fiber type and length of cable.Open report
This report explores the commercial potential of C-RAN (Cloud or Centralized Radio Access Network), the principal emerging architecture for distributed radio access networks (RANs) used in mobile phone networks. In the report CIR discusses how major suppliers of equipment for mobile infrastructure will position themselves for the 5G market using C-RAN as part of their strategy. It also examines what functionality the mobile service providers are looking for from future distributed RANs. Also included in this report are ten-year market forecasts for C-RAN revenues and deployments and a thorough discussion of product trends – such as the move to smaller C-RANs – as represented by the announcements from leading vendorsOpen report
CIR believes that we are now on the verge of rapid growth in the PON market brought on by new applications and by growing international demand. Meanwhile, this new “PON revolution” is being enabled by powerful new PON technologies especially XGS-PON and NG-PON. This report identifies the emerging opportunities for the passive optical network (PON) business over the coming decade.Open report
For the past 15 years, major service providers and research institutions worldwide have run quantum network trials. We are now entering a period in which permanent quantum networks are being built. These are designed initially to support quantum encryption services, but will soon also provide the infrastructure for quantum computing.
CIR believes that as quantum networks are deployed, they will eventually create opportunities at the service level, but more immediately at the components and modules level. This is because quantum networks will require a slew of new optical networking technologies to make them function effectively. In this report, CIR identifies the leading opportunities that will emerge from the building of quantum networks throughout the world.Open report
