2012 Carrier Gigabit Ethernet Market Predictions

By Mike Collado
December 31st, 2011

2011 saw the launch of SOLiD’s ClearLight ACCESS™ high-capacity distribution product which unlocks network capacity within an existing fiber plant for rural telecom providers. Since its launch, ClearLight ACCESS has been well-received at both industry events and by customers. We expect to duplicate and expand upon these successes in 2012.

And, now, on to our market predictions…

Enterprises will upgrade their WAN Edge to GbE from 10/100


Continued migration of Access transport to Ethernet over DWDM technology

With advantages that include extremely low latency, distance reach and secure connections, we expect strong growth of DWDM.

Also, the emergence of Ethernet has revived the wavelength services market as a number of service providers use waves to provision Ethernet circuits, and most 1 GigE and 10 GigE Ethernet circuits provisioned today are over dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM)
