Your library or personal account may give you access

This latest installment features the following topics:
• A brief update on the photonics market, featuring hot topics in optical communications addressed by OIDA at OFC2014. It suggests good prospects ahead for 2014. It reviews why there is so much attention to data centers, photonic integration, 100+G coherent transmission, and SDN. And, it begins a discussion of the coming transformation of communication networks. With traditional providers like Comcast moving into content, and "content" providers like Google moving into infrastructure, and with the coming of the software-defined and virtual network, what will that mean for the traditional optical equipment and component vendors?
• An update on selected segments of the optical data communications market: data center optics and silicon photonics, which is often cited as a solution to the demands on data center optics. OIDA has a strong effort in photonic integration that will be featured in coming reports.
• An expanded analysis of the market for passive optics. This reviews the market for passive optics - photonics products that are not electrically active devices. They are discussed by target application and by technology (free-space, fiber-based, and wafer-based). It also includes a discussion of the suppliers. Most of the revenues are concentrated among a few large suppliers.
