Running Out of Bandwidth? Take a Fresh Look at 100G

Running Out of Bandwidth? Take a Fresh Look at 100G


Every service provider worries about running out of bandwidth and with mobile device network additions growing four times faster than the population, the bandwidth concern is becoming a reality. Network connectivity over the highest-bandwidth metro, regional, or core portions of networks requires dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) transport technology.

Early 100G DWDM solutions suffered from high prices, poor performance, high power consumption, and poor use of space, compared to 10G. But, a more recent period of 100G investment is now producing:

  • Higher scale
  • Better performance
  • Lower power consumption
  • Smaller form factors
  • And compelling price points

This white paper describes each of these technological advances and how a 100G benefit in scale can even be accomplished with existing, fully depreciated, legacy 10G DWDM systems.
