REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – January 27, 2020 – According to a recent forecast report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, coherent port shipments on DWDM systems are forecast to reach 1.3 million by 2024. A major share of these port shipments will operate at 400 Gbps.

“We are projecting coherent port shipments on DWDM systems to grow at an 18 percent CAGR,” said Jimmy Yu, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “Further igniting this market will be all the new, higher baud rate coherent line cards entering the market this year that will set the path for many more years of growth.
