100g optics is group of computer associated technologies which is used to transmit Ethernet signals at a rate of 100 gigabyte per second. A 100 gigabyte Ethernet standard comprises of different physical layer specifications. These support different physical layer types by means of plugging modules.
The 100g is one of the fastest spreading product segments and acquires half of the market. With the market evolution 100g transceiver is one emerging interface types.
The need to switch to 100 gigabyte fibre optics is the need to exploit its economical aspects as well as speed up processes and apart from this the basic factors are-
- To minimize the number of colours of light that are used to light new fibre.
- To exploit bit rate more effectively than 10gigabyte optics.
- 100 gigabyte technology lets you skip the expensive 40g technology and you can directly move from 10 to 100g bit/s.
Enhanced transmission performance and pricing is also another factor to switching to this transport technology.
Interest in 100g optical network transport is expanding by day and telecom and technology operators are deploying 40g dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) technology to enhance optical channelization significantly.
Telecom companies and individual suppliers evaluation report suggest an increase in 50 to 60% traffic growth in this network interface. Changes in network architecture and user expansion which increases bit rate per user is another driver for adoption of high bit rate network interface.
100 gigabyte network transmission is practical to use as it provides better port density, greater flexibility and energy efficiency.
