Market demand has begun for 400G as a service. The trial record for 400G has been building across a number of applications including data center interconnect, intra-data center, over subsea links, in the terrestrial network core and for enterprise. Leading CSPs have begun to offer 400G and now are looking to scale. Demand for 400G will ramp in 2022 across all geographies. What are the early uses cases for 400G for the CSP, ICP, IX and enterprise communities? What does network as a service mean and how does that align with automation, scale, and flexibility?
