Cambridge, MASSACHUSETTS (August 11, 2015)—Coherent 100G port shipments for metro regional optical networks grew 145 percent in 2014 from the prior year, and are anticipated to grow another 118 percent in 2015, predicts IHS (NYSE: IHS).
“Adoption of 100G coherent technology has surged, first in long haul networks and now becoming a material part of metro networks. The expansion of 100G into new markets was the catalyst for our100G+ coherent optical ports report, which provides an accurate, in-depth picture of how 100G technology is being used today and how it’ll be used in the future as the landscape grows increasingly complex,” said Andrew Schmitt, research director for carrier transport networking at IHS.
