Research and Markets: Active Optical Cable Markets and Opportunities 2014 to 2024 - Data Center Applications

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6bwksh/active_optical) has announced the addition of the "Active Optical Cable Markets and Opportunities: 2014 to 2024: Volume I - Data Center Applications" report to their offering.

Traffic from data centers are now a major driving force behind the Internet; even the smallest of businesses now rely on data centers for revenue generation. And the largest data centers today are orders of magnitude larger than the supercomputing centers of a few years ago. Until quite recently, for most data center managers, optical data centers were nice to dream about, but not really essential. Perhaps they needed an optical link or two, at most. Today, the all-optical data center - perhaps even an all-SMF data center -- is something that even managers of medium-sized data centers should be considering.

All of these trends means that the opportunities for selling optical networking systems into data centers have expanded considerably in the past few years. In this report, we identify and forecast just what these opportunities are.

The markets and market trends discussed in this report include:

- Next-generation Ethernet. We discuss how the transition from GigE to 10G, 40G and 100G will lead to significant new revenue generation opportunities for firms with Ethernet products of all types and what the likely roadmap and timetables for optical Ethernet in the data center will look like

- InfiniBand (IB) and Fibre Channel. These standards are often declared dead; murdered by Ethernet. But they continue to find large addressable markets and have aggressive roadmaps promoted by their trade associations. This report will show how these standards will profitably fit into the optical data center that is expected to emerge over the next few years

- Novel networking architectures. The report will examine how SDN and virtualization will affect physical infrastructure deployment in the coming optical data center and which components and subsystems firms will be able to benefit from this.

This report will also include an assessment of the leading suppliers of optical components and modules and will provide guidance on how the product market strategies of these firms will evolve as the market for optical networking in data centers develops worldwide. The report also includes granular five-year forecasts of both optical transceivers and AOCs with appropriate breakouts by data rate, standards, wavelength and form factor.
