Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively.

 

To solve this challenge, it’s best to deconstruct the problem. A more recent period of 100G investment, led by Cisco, 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 this 100G benefit in scale can even be accomplished with existing, fully depreciated, legacy 10G DWDM systems.
