Today, traffic is dominated by latency and bandwidth sensitive applications such as VR, AR, gaming, and video. With growing mobility of user applications and pressure to keep costs down, networks are becoming more dynamic under software control with functional virtualization, while the actual networking equipment is being disaggregated. In this new paradigm, datacenter interconnections continue to grow on average in excess of 27% CAGR, yet datacenters still operate below capacity, with typical 10G servers operating at around ~25-35% of peak efficiency.
So, is it all about more speed and larger pipes to increase bandwidth? Titan will discuss new intelligent software enabled optics techniques and business models such as Operations-as-a-Service, that not only help operators optimize their WAN based fiber inter-connections, but also provide precious OPEX and CAPEX savings in excess of 15-25% (per end) link termination.
