Optical networking means the medium of communication in which the original signal is encoded into light pulse & transmitted among various nodes of telecom network, which is operated in a limited range of Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN), & interconnected to form a larger network all the way to national, international & interoceanic distance. This is the form of optical communication which depends upon optical amplifier, Lasers, LEDs, WDM to transmit data through a channel (usually by Optical fiber). Which is capable of transmitting data with maximum possible bandwidth and minimum possible losses.
As the demand of bandwidth is continuously increasing from residential and business customers and also the communication sector is going up by the increasing use of online gaming, video surfing, and social-media and online shopping by the residential customer which increases the need of bandwidth in metros as well as in urban areas. Which forces the network provider & networking equipment manufacturer to provide such infrastructure & equipment which support higher digital traffic over the network. Today, with this extensive burden of applications of smart phones tablets and PC, existing network is unable to provide required high bandwidth and data speed. Hence optical network came in the existence which can easily fulfill these requirements. Hence the market of optical networking is expected to grow with tremendous CAGR during forecasting period.
