Today，in China, 4G network is the most commom used mobile communication network.We believe that in the coming five years as 5G network matures, 5G network (the fifth generation of the mobile communication technology) will be a hot spot in the realm of info-communication, enjoying a rapid development.The antecedent construction and upgrade of Hosted Network will continuously promote the demand of telecom network optical devices. At the same time, in the era of cloud computing, there will be an explosive growth of data center network needs.Accordingly, National Internet enterprises led by BAT enter the expansion period of IDC demand. The demand of high-speed optical NIC and modules such as 25G network card and 100G network card must increase rapidly.
Features of Network：
◆Large bandwidth ◆Low latency ◆Service mesh ◆Network slicing ◆Envolving from NSA to SA
5G Hosted Network accesses to base station from 10 GE and 25 GE UNI.The network side will introduce 25 GE, 50 GE, and 100 GE interconnection technology.MAN may involve to 200 GE and 400 GE link.Therefore, 5G network construction requires optical NIC with the feature of integration, miniaturization, high bitratesion, long distance, low cost, and low power. For example, 25G NIC, 100G NIC and so on.
Development Trend of 25G and 100G NIC
The rate of optical NIC is always the focus of market. NIC can be classified by rate: 1.25Gb/s, 10Gb/s, 25Gb/s, 40Gb/s, 100Gb/s and others.Currently, factors that promote the upgrade of optical NIC rate mainly come from several aspects. On the one hand, "Broadband China" strategy requires 100 megabyte optical fiber to the home, which increases the pressure of optical port layer by layer, promoting the demand for high-rate optical modules.With the deployment of 5G, operators need to deploy larger bandwidth to realize the application of large traffic data, such as telemedicine, VR, 4K video, etc. Therefore, all levels of mobile network must have higher rate, which promotes the development of 25G/100G NIC.
In the era of 4G network, optical network operators upgrades their products. The demand of cloud computing data center and full-optical data center grows rapidly, paarticularly 10G NIC. It is believed that in the age of 5G network,25G/100G NIC will lead the continuous growth of optical communication industry.
