FiberStore: 100G OTN Take Off, CFP Module Becomes the Mainstream

FiberStore predicted in its latest first half years summarization conversion that with the increasing demand for large-capacity transmission, CFP modules will become the mainstream of the feature transceiver market.

Online PR News – 02-August-2013 – San Francisco, California – Last week, FiberStore director , Daniell make a report in its first half years summarization conversion, indicating that with the increasing demand for large-capacity transmission, CFP module, using to access the OTU4 or 100GE business, will become the mainstream of the future module market.

Dalton said that "Along with the home broadband access via xDSL escalate into PON, wire and wireless broadband subscribers continued rapid growth, and the continual emergence of high speed internet, IPTV, 3D, HD video, cloud computing, cloud storage, networking and other broadband applications, the bandwidth requirements of the transmission grow exponentially from backbone to the metro network. In the next few years, the route network will also face enormous and long-term bandwidth pressure, 100G WDM/OTN large-capacity transmission network will become the only effective relieving method for operators."

From 2012 to 2013, 100G is replacing 40G in the market, becoming the mainstream. It is expected by 2017. In the shipment of WDM/OTN, 100G will account for more than 60%. From 2013 to 2017, compound annual growth rate of global shipment of 100G will reach up to 47%.

In 100G WDM/OTN system, CFP package is widely used to access the client-side module 100GE or OTU4 business. Among which 100G BASE-ER4 and 100GBASE-LR10 are most widely used. While 100G BASE-ER4 and 100GBASE-ER10 technology are still not mature, remaining to be further researching and developing.

With 100G technologies mature commercial application, FiberStore will continually huge efforts in the ultra-100G technology research and development, focusing on 400G and 1T transmission technology in the future ten years. Due to substantial technical bottlenecks of 400G, and because that the related industrial chains are still in its infancy, it is predicated that 400G will not realize small-scale commercial use until 2020.

FiberStore has been at the forefront of the world in the 100G and ultra-100G technology R & D. The commercial 100G WDM/OTN products will be launched by the end of this year. The 100G WDM/OTN series platform will support 10G/40G/100G transmission rate, and flexibly and efficiently scheduling ODU0/1/2/2e/3/3e2/4/flex particles businesses.
