Dec 12, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global 40G and 100G Line-cards Market 2011-2015" report to its offerings.
In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include:
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global 40G and 100G Line-cards market to grow at a CAGR of 27.2 percent over the period 2011-201. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing bandwidth requirements. The Global 40G and 100G Line-cards market has also been witnessing the growing demand for 100G Line-cards.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena Corp., Fujitsu Ltd., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., and ZTE Corp.
The other vendors mentioned in the report are Cisco Systems Inc., NEC Corp., Ericsson Inc., Xtera Communications Inc., Juniper Networks Inc ., Technicolor Inc., Infinera Corp., Nokia Siemens Networks, Fiberhome Networks Co. Ltd., and Tellabs Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''Over the past few years, the demand for 40G and 100G line-cards has been increasing significantly. However, 100G line-cards accounted for a very low percent of the entire sales volume of the Global 40G and 100G Line-cards market in 2011, because they are much more expensive than 40G line-cards. Despite this, the sales of 100G line-cards are expected to overshadow those of 40G line-cards in the coming years. This is because the prices of 100G line-cards are expected to decline by 2013. Indeed, by the end of 2015, the revenue contribution of 100G line-cards is expected to increase significantly.''
According to the report, the most important factor driving the adoption of 40G and 100G line-cards is the growing need for bandwidth to support data-intensive applications such as online gaming, IPVOD, and videophone services. Further, the penetration of smartphones and tablets has increased significantly, leading to increased demand for high-speed internet. The applications that are frequently used in these devices require high bandwidth to offer a rich experience to end-users. Therefore, 40G and 100G line-cards, which offer high bandwidth, are increasingly being adopted by enterprises and service providers.
