400 G, OTN and Next-Generation Transport:  A Market and Technology Forecast

This report provides a complete opportunity analysis and roadmap for 400 G transport, including an assessment of innovations such as superchannels and the latest modulation schemes, and the role of coherent and Raman technology, as well as the emerging standards framework for 400 G from the ITU and OIF.  Based on this analysis, we identify the key capabilities that will be needed in next generation core network platforms and how they are most likely to be provided.  The report also includes a granular eight-year forecast of the 400 G core market with breakouts by type of technology and network segment.

Next-Generation Ethernet: From 100 Gbps to 400 Gbps and Beyond

Based on more than two decades of experience, 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 makes 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.

Revenue Opportunities for Optical Interconnects:Market and Technology Forecast - 2013 to 2020 Vol II

In this report, we analyze the latest developments in optical interconnection at the chip level and the progress in this area that is being made by important research teams throughout the world. Both R&D and commercial development are discussed.The report looks at this issue from the perspective of classic CPU chips as well as the latest architectures, and the opportunities for optical interconnection are compared to a possible future for metal interconnects and interconnect alternatives that are even more exotic than photonics; carbon nanotubes, especially.

The report also contains a 10-year roadmap that explains where and when the commercial opportunities for optical interconnection at the chip level will emerge and how much they will be worth. We also profile the leading firms and research efforts involved in designing and implementing on-chip and chip-to-chip optical interconnection.

Revenue Opportunities for Optical Interconnects: Market and Technology Forecast – 2013-2020-Vol. I

In addition, to showing how the markets for OICs will evolve, this report looks at the daunting challenges facing optical interconnection; primarily providing cost-effective optical technology in markets that are used to paying only minimal amounts for metal connectivity. Also included in the report is an analysis of the evolution of OIC technology including the role of AOCs in the optical interconnect space and the eventual shift to waveguide backplanes and other advanced optical technologies. In its granular eight-year forecasts, this report also quantifies how much those opportunities will be worth.
