Press release   •   Aug 08, 2013 13:57 BST

The Global 100G Line Card market is to grow at a CAGR of 69.97 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing bandwidth requirement from enterprises and end-users. The market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for cloud computing and cloud-based applications. However, the high pricing of 100G line cards could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

One of the major trends being witnessed in the Global 100G Line Card market is the growing demand for cloud application delivery. Faster evolution of cloud computing and cloud-based applications is resulting in an increasing adoption of such applications among enterprises. End-users are accessing the applications over the cloud infrastructure, which gives the flexibility of accessing the applications from any location using any computing device. The cloud infrastructure is supported using high-speed communication networks and fiber channels. 100G line cards find their adoption in places where communication networks are interconnected with routers. Currently, 100G transponders are replacing multiple muxponders, which are used for the integration of multiple low-speed interconnects into a high-speed channel.

One of the major drivers is the increasing bandwidth of enterprise networks; this is mainly because of the increasing number of bandwidth-intensive applications being adopted by enterprises. Enterprises are increasingly adopting video-based applications such as VOD, video conferencing, and online gaming applications.
