Opportunities in Board-Level Optical Interconnects: 2017 - Focus on Optics-Enabled Circuit Boards, Optical Engines and Optical Backplanes - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Opportunities in Board-Level Optical Interconnects: Optics-Enabled Circuit Boards, Optical Engines and Optical Backplanes" report to their offering.

This report is designed to identify new opportunities for board-level optical interconnects and optical circuit boards. This is an area where the author has provided coverage for many years and the forecasts and other data provided in this report are rooted in an insider experience of this interesting area. Thus, this report contains a technical analysis of the requirements of this space (issues such as power consumption, etc.) and a detailed ten-year (volume and value) forecast with breakouts by type of box (HPC, servers, routers, switches, telecom equipment, etc.), components, fiber, etc. The report also offers an assessment of the product/market strategies of key optical firms active in this area.

This report provides an analysis of such activities from the perspective of revenue generation and discusses how firms active in the optical interconnect space can distinguish themselves in the market through both technology and supply chain strategies. The author is particularly interested in this report as to how the latest in optical integration/silicon photonics can benefit the optical interconnect space. The author also examines the opportunities that are presented by the high-speed electronic ICs that will be needed to support the growth of board-level optics. In addition, the report provides a critical analysis of the standards and MSA work that is being done in this space.
