Paper Abstract

In an effort to meet core, regional, and metro network requirements, 40G DWDM suppliers have employed numerous modulation formats. Each modulation format brought its own unique set of optical, electrical, and optoelectronic component requirements, which challenged component suppliers to prioritize research and development efforts. In addition to a highly segmented market, a lack of investment in standardization has resulted in a highly fragmented market for suppliers of 40G technology. We explore how the 100G market may differ.
