Research and Markets: Next-Generation Ethernet: From 100 Gbps to 400 Gbps and Beyond Report Includes Key Players
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4fdcg8/nextgeneration)
has announced the addition of the "Next-Generation
Ethernet: From 100 Gbps to 400 Gbps and Beyond" report to their
New Report Examines the Commercial Future of 400-Gigabit Ethernet
The report assesses the business and deployment models emerging for 400
GigE and provides the first tentative revenue and port forecasts for its
deployment. In the report the author notes that the world's largest data
centers have already begun to deploy 400 Gbps aggregations and backbones
and efforts put forth by the IEEE (News - Alert) towards standardizing 400 Gigabit
Ethernet (GigE) represent major progress towards creating a 400 Gbps
From the report:
The author sees 400 GigE as being sold into the same medium-to-large
data centers as 100 GigE is today, but believes that the addressable
market for 400 GigE will be considerably larger than that initially
targeted by 100 GigE. The size of the average data center has grown
exponentially since then, with new applications - especially big data -
pushing this growth forward.
While the 100 GigE effort saw squabbling over interim standards, the 400
GigE standard has been designed to prevent another Ethernet war.
However, there is still plenty of room for squabbles especially over
reach and module formats.
400 GigE will be the first IEEE standard that will be almost wholly
fiber (copper will be used only in chip-to-chip and chip-to-module
interconnects). The arrival of 400 GigE will be a big incentive for much
greater use of single-mode fiber in the data center and for the arrival
of the all-SMF data center. The author believes that these trends will
create new opportunities for manufacturers of fiber optic connectors and
active optic cables.
400 GigE will be the end of the long era in which Ethernet is based
around 10 Gbps channels and NRZ modulation. The future will be 100 Gbps
channels and PAM modulation. This will create major new challenges for
ASIC and optical device makers, especially with regard to creating
higher levels of integration.
