Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest ROADM Components report, which tracks the reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) optical network equipment market and the wavelength selective switch (WSS) components within it.
ROADM ANALYST NOTE
“The rollout of colorless, directionless, and contentionless (CDC) ROADMs is starting this year with major suppliers such as Ciena moving to production and carriers including Verizon proceeding with deployments. This should provide a much-needed tailwind to the WSS component sector,” notes Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics Research.
ROADM COMPONENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Globally, ROADM WSS component revenue totaled $111 million in the second half of 2013 (2H13), up 4% from the first half of 2013 (1H13), but down 7% from the same period a year ago (2H12)
- For the full year 2013, worldwide revenue for ROADM WSS components declined 8% from 2012 due to mild increases in volume combined with continued price declines
- In 2014, Infonetics expects both WSS component unit shipments and revenue to increase
- Meanwhile, global revenue for WDM ROADM-based optical equipment (excluding components) increased 11% in 2013 from 2012, to $4.5 billion
- Infonetics expects WDM ROADM-based optical equipment to remain the fastest-growing segment of the optical transport business, with a projected 2013–2018 compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13%
- No single vendor controls the market for WDM ROADM equipment—they are tightly bunched

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
