Get Ready for 400 Gb/s and 1Tb/s Interfaces: What’s Up and Coming in the Optical Network and Fiber Optic Sensors Markets
FARMINGTON, Conn., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — An explosion of bandwidth-hungry applications and broadband Internet users is driving dramatic changes in the high-speed data transmission market. Meanwhile, fiber optic sensor technology is also expanding rapidly. Monitoring and data transmission using fiber optic sensors and optical fiber in cabling have become commonplace in various applications. What does the future hold for optical networks and sensors? To remain on the cutting edge, businesses need the most up-to-date and accurate information. Global Information Inc. presents two new reports and a comprehensive research service that will provide the data companies need for better business decision-making.
New Frontiers – Ultra High Speed Communications
Public and private networks are experiencing unprecedented end-user demand for bandwidth, resulting in a need to cost-effectively scale the capacity of communications networks. The amount of backbone Internet bandwidth maintained by major Internet carriers has been expanding by 75% to 125% per year. 40 Gb/s networks already have a history of success; and 100 Gb/s rates are introduced by major service providers. Industry analysts are already talking about 400 Gb/s and even 1 Tb/s interfaces; such rates are becoming a necessity for data centers and computing networks, as well as for long haul applications including terrestrial submarine extensions.

Fiber Optic Sensors Global Market Forecast and Analysis 2011-2016
Fiber optic sensor consumption value will grow at an impressive average annual rate of 20.5% from $1.34 billion to $3.39 billion over the next five years. Use of fiber optic interface extrinsic sensors is forecast to increase at 18.15% per year. Meanwhile, worldwide consumption value for fiber optic intrinsic sensors is forecast to increase at an average annual growth rate of nearly 20.7% during the 2011-2016 forecast period.
Extrinsic sensing takes place in a region outside of the optical fiber and the optical fiber acts as a transmission media of light to and from (linking) the sensing interface. In contrast, with an intrinsic sensor, one or more of the sensing/measuring quantity or physical properties (measurand) of the optical fiber passes through or inside the optical fiber and therefore experiences a change.
