Optical Transport Networks (OTNs) are one of the fastest-growing segments of the optical market, making up nearly half of all 2011 optical equipment spending as confirmed in Infonetics’ OTN and Packet Optical Hardware report. As carriers refresh their transport infrastructure, there’s an opportunity to roll in new functions like OTN switching to fill these new, fat 100G pipes. This webinar will look at transport network deployment plans for the next five years and the role that OTN switching will play in this expansion.
