New Report Examines the Commercial Future of 400-Gigabit Ethernet

The report assesses the business and deployment models emerging for 400 GigE and provides the first tentative revenue and port forecasts for its deployment. In the report the author notes that the world's largest data centers have already begun go deploy 400 Gbps aggregations and backbones and efforts put forth by the IEEE towards standardizing 400 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) represents major progress towards creating a 400 Gbps networking market. 

From the report:

The author sees 400 GigE as being sold into the same medium-to-large data centers as 100 GigE is today, but believes that the addressable market for 400 GigE will be considerably larger than that initially targeted by 100 GigE. The size of the average data center has grown exponentially since then, with new applications - especially big data - pushing this growth forward.

While the 100 GigE effort saw squabbling over interim standards, the 400 GigE standard has been designed to prevent another Ethernet war. However, there is still plenty of room for squabbles especially over reach and module formats

400 GigE will be the first IEEE standard that will be almost wholly fiber (copper will be used only in chip-to-chip and chip-to-module interconnects). The arrival of 400 GigE will be a big incentive for much greater use of single-mode fiber in the data center and for the arrival of the all-SMF data center. The author believes that these trends will create new opportunities for manufacturers of fiber optic connectors and active optic cables.

400 GigE will be the end of the long era in which Ethernet is based around 10 Gbps channels and NRZ modulation. The future will be 100 Gbps channels and PAM modulation. This will create major new challenges for ASIC and optical device makers, especially with regard to creating higher levels of integration
