Here's an interesting point from the The Optical Society (OSA) (OSA) Executive Forum, yesterday's preview conference to OFC/NFOEC. Andrew Schmitt of Nyquist Capital asked a service-provider panel what they're doing now that peer-to-peer (P2P) represents most of the traffic on their networks.
All four denied the "most" part, but they agreed P2P video is an up-and-coming bandwidth eater. (See P2P Camp Swarms Video.)
Whether they need to do anything about it is, judging by the varying responses, debatable.
I should also note there was a surprise (to me) appearance by Georgio Anania, formerly of Bookham Inc. (Nasdaq: BKHM; London: BHM). I've got some Q&A fodder I may post later today.
