ECI, MultiPhy Do Metro 100G

LOS ANGELES -- ECI Telecom, a global provider of next-generation network solutions, and MultiPhy, Ltd, a global leader in DSP-based high bandwidth CMOS communications semiconductors, today announced the development of a low-cost, metro 100G transport solution. This solution will be showcased in MultiPhy’s booth at OFC/NFOEC 2012(booth number 2163).

With financial support provided by the Israeli Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) through its Magneton program, ECI and MultiPhy have been working on a low-cost 100G initiative for the metro market, based on a Ben-Gurion University research project. Driven by the continued growth of video streaming and data consumption in the metro zones, next-generation metro transport network solutions must be bandwidth and cost efficient.

"While attention today is focused on 100G long haul deployments, the metro WDM/packet-optical market is still the fastest growing market. 100G non-coherent will be key for large metro upgrades starting next year," said Eve Griliches, Principle Analyst, ACG Research.

re: ECI, MultiPhy Do Metro 100G

Now that 'Verizon loves its (coherent) 100G' solutions for the metro, and all major OEMs align on using coherent technology for 100G, is there a market for 'non-coherent' 100G?
