Optical Components

Markets Position To Participate In High Growth

Market Strategies and Market Forecasts To 2007

 

Communications equipment suppliers rely upon fiber optic component manufacturers to quickly design, manufacture and supply advanced optical components.  Communications optical component suppliers strive to reduce the overall cost, size, amount and manufacturing complexity of equipment used to build optical networks.

The number of components that they must utilize to improve system performance has substantially increased due to the growing complexity of optical network systems.  Component manufacturers need to integrate more optical components into single compact modules.

These integrated modules may often provide higher performance and functionality than individual products that are linked together; however, integration often adds more design complexity giving the market leaders with advanced technology support strategic advantage in the market.

Rapid technological advances coupled with high demand for the most advanced optical components and integrated optical modules has reduced product lifecycles and shortened the time for deployment within networks.  Optical component manufacturers are increasingly required to achieve a significant ramp-up in manufacturing capacity and reduce time-to-market for new component design in order to meet the demand of equipment suppliers.  At the same time, manufacturers confront the reality that markets have evaporated for the time being due to a severe contraction of the telecommunications equipment markets.

 

Market driving forces relate to the need for broadband, the use of the Internet to implement supply chain economies of scale, the ability to put together a network at less cost, and the increased capacity for communication systems provided by optical components.

Internet protocol architecture is significantly more efficient than circuit switched architecture.  Circuit switches provide an end-to-end connection for voice traffic.  This type of network architecture is very inefficient, tying up a line during the silences and pauses of a voice conversation.

Packet switching based on IP architecture utilizes fixed length packets that can be crammed into the same line.  Because communication is packetized at the near end of the connection and the communication is depacketedized at the far end of the conversation packet transmission can be very dense.  Data transmission in packets supports many different communications on the same path simultaneously.
