Demand for bandwidth and low latency in the core network continues to explode, video services, cloud computing, voice over IP and social media driving more network traffic.
The telecommunications market has started to expand beyond the small number of very large equipment providers (OEMs), and is now migrating to captive networks, created solely for in-house use by large video services, search engine and cloud computing companies. In addition, the changing needs of the internet are driving an evolution in network topologies. This evolution, combined with the dramatic increase in the need for bandwidth and reduced latency, has created opportunities for new optical technologies and component innovations.
Oclaro is expanding R&D where their technology innovation delivers real value and differentiation for customers. With heritage of optical innovation they are leading in the very high speed segments of the optical communications market at 40G and above. These solutions are targeted at three distinct, large and growing markets:
Telecom Optical Networks
The core optical network is at the heart of the Internet highway that provides the bandwidth, speed, reach and flexibility to run new and exciting applications such streaming video, social media, cloud computing and voice over IP. OCLR is a leading supplier of optical products at the component, transceiver, and module level, including tunable lasers, receivers, and modulators, that are needed for high-speed transmission, and they are leading the rapidly growing 100G segment.
Enterprise Networks and Data Centers
Enterprises and data centers have grown in complexity as they manage the rapidly escalating demands for increased bandwidth and diverse types of data driven through the consumerization of IT and the transition to SaaS services. These next generation architectures, such as hyperscale data centers, require very high speed interconnects to support intensive data traffic within and between corporate datacenters. OCLR is a leading supplier of client-side and short reach optical transceivers at 10G, 40G, 100G and, in some cases, less than 10G, into data communications and enterprise solutions.
Clearly OCLR is hitting all the right buttons this year. If can keep their foot on the gas in this explosive industry, we can expect to see more of the same when earnings are released on 11/1. To get the full story on OCLR subscribe below to Oracle Dispatch right now.
