    Driven by the upsurge of cloud services and Internet of things, Internet giants such as Google, Facebook, Alibaba and Baidu are speeding up the construction of hyperscale data center, and upgrading the backbone network to 100Gbit / s, spurring the high demand for laser communication components, injecting a strong shot into the future revenue growth of relevant suppliers. The business opportunities of optical communication market are unlimited.
    Daryl Inniss, head of ovum communication components business, said that driven by the demand for ultra large scale data center and telecom backbone / access network bandwidth upgrade, the introduction of new generation 100Gbit / s broadband communication technology has officially broken out, which will help stimulate the global market output value of optical communication devices to rise year by year. It is estimated that 2014 will grow by 8% compared with 2013, and the compound annual growth rate from 2013 to 2019 will be 10%, It is expected to reach a market size of 12.3 billion US dollars in 2019.
Inniss stressed that 2015 will be the first year for the commercial expansion of 100g network technology, including 100g DWDM, ROADM and OTN solutions; After 2016, the design of ultra-high bandwidth wide area network, data network and fiber to antenna (ftta) transceiver will continue to drive the demand of 100g components.
In fact, the rapid development of long-range evolution network (LTE) and cloud related applications has led to a significant increase in network traffic. Therefore, the demand for the general public radio interface (CPRI) module used in LTE backbone network and the related modules of the SFP + / qsfp carried in cloud data center is also increasing, and the channel speed is accelerating to 100g, thus driving new component design and testing opportunities.
    Wang Yucong, deputy project manager of amritz business and technical support department, pointed out that under the high frequency transmission architecture, the importance of jitter related test will be more prominent. Both the jitter analysis of transmission signal and jitter tolerance of receiving circuit have become the focus of module manufacturers and measuring instrument manufacturers, In order to ensure the quality and reliability of signal transmission.
    It is reported that the development challenge of 100g Ethernet module mainly lies in the fact that manufacturers must inject four 25gbit / s transmission / reception circuits into small modules and conduct multi-channel transmission test. Therefore, instrument manufacturers will play a key role in promoting the commercialization of 100g Ethernet. In this regard, Wang Yucong stressed that the company has launched a complete 100g Ethernet network R & D and production line testing scheme, which can provide 25g / 28gbit / s multi-channel signal testing, module signal jitter analysis / tolerance verification and bit error rate testing (BERT), which will help promote the market time of 100g Ethernet products.
