Research and Markets: Wireless and Data Center Optics Will Lead Market Growth in 2014

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/sgm5rs/wireless_and_data) has announced the addition of the "Wireless and Data Center Optics Will Lead Market Growth in 2014" report to their offering.

Sales of optical components and modules used in datacom and telecom networks increased steadily 2013. However, revenues of networking equipment suppliers remained stubbornly flat last year and their guidance for 2014 is not encouraging. While numerous network upgrade projects continue worldwide, fierce competition among suppliers of telecom equipment negatively impacts revenue growth, but increasing deployments of 100G in telecom networks helped suppliers of optics in 2013. Operators of mega datacenters tend to by-pass traditional datacom equipment suppliers, such as Cisco, but they are still purchasing optics, including 10GigE and 40GigE transceivers.

Analysis of publicly reported revenues of equipment vendors combined with confidential sales data of optical components and modules, collected by LightCounting, offer a unique insight into market dynamics, presented in this report. The report also presents analysis of network bandwidth growth calculated from data on shipments of opto-electronic interface modules employed in telecom, enterprise, and storage area networks. This approach to tracking the market offers an effective method for identifying the timing and scope of infrastructure upgrade cycles, technology transitions, and even product life cycles.

In addition to in-depth market analysis, this report offers summaries of the latest business developments and financial performance for leading equipment manufacturers. Quarterly sales database, offered with the report, includes sales data on more than 100 product categories covering the period from Q1 2012 to Q4 2013 for SONET/SDH, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, CWDM, DWDM, FTTx and Wireless Infrastructure transceivers, as well as high speed optical interconnects, including active optical cables and embedded optical modules.

Data for the report was provided by more than 25 leading module and component vendors.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
