@iniewski; both camps did! The 4X QSFP with 10Gig/lane form factor works well for 40Gig whereas the 10X CXP is the first step for 100Gig. There is also the 25/28Gig/lane 4X version for 100Gig. These two rates seem to be defining the limit of Copper interconnects in the datacenter for now. Future versions at 1Tb/sec will be all fiber. MP Divakar

thank you Rick, does anyone know how large are 400 Gb/s and 1 Tb/s markets? Kris

Dunno. Good question. Maybe there is double counting here with all data going through core wired/optical nets and only some through wireless access nets.

Some facing nasty cluster interconnects at data centers like Facebook have screamed for terabit, right now. Engineers who know the costs have been saying "It may be cheaper to re-architect your data center clusters than pay for us to push the physics of light that far."

I guess it was a tie with both getting standards and seeming to eke out a businesses so far.

The mobile data though have the highest CAGR but is still a small fraction of the total usage. Is this because of the high price or limited speed or relatively low number of devices?

It is true that there is going to be increase in the number of persons using internet throughout the globe. But simultaneously there are significant work is being carried out to reduce the actual traffic by the means of compression and technology advancements. It is true that HDTV and Live TV is increasing the demand on the internet speed but at the same time advancements in the streaming technologies will not let the traffic boost beyond limits. Yes increasing speeds and high speed interfaces will be in huge demand but they will be able to cope up with the situation.

In the past few years, Internet in China and India are growing in a fast pace in the last few years. Infrastructure are being build. Most major cities are wired pretty well. In addition, Internet TV and mobile TV are growing exceptionally well in Asia. With the introduction of HDTV content, the demand of bandwidth has crazily grown in the region. I can understand the growth up to 2015. For the demand to grow further, II am skeptical unless there is a higher definition TV standard and the development of better wired infrastructure in another part of the world, e.g. some countries in Africa and Southern America. However, if wireless technology comes into a breakthrough, the demand of higher infrastructure bandwidth may increase.

I believe we have all the technologies in hand to cater this data demands.
