Optical transport network (OTN) is evolving due to the increasing need for faster communication and increasing congestion of mobile networks. OTN networks are used in a variety of applications like video, voice, and storage. They are also used for supporting higher data transfer rates, thus allowing carriers to scale swiftly to support the tremendous growth of data traffic on their networks. Technological developments by hardware manufacturers for producing new equipments are in the last phase that will make use of advanced features and add value to transport networks. This hardware equipment combines optical channel data unit (ODU) switching with advanced features like tandem connection monitoring (TCM), additional ODUs and standardized control plane. These technological improvements in the OTN hardware market and the ever-increasing demand for faster communication are driving the market growth and this trend is expected to continue in future.
The global manufacturer revenue from OTN transport and switching market is expected to reach USD 10.6 billion by the end of 2015. Growth in OTN switching is expected to continue as 40G and 100G coherent technology rollouts catalyze the employment of new technologies including OTN switching.
