The second market I'd like to focus on is HPA, which accounted for 50% of our revenue in Q1. This business has continually exceeded our expectations for the last few quarters and has been driven by three factors. First, share gains in broadcast video infrastructure which grew 20% sequentially for us last quarter and where we continue to lead the industry with state-of-the-art cross-point switches and SDI components. Second, sustained growth in OTM infrastructure which leverages our broad portfolio of PMDs and cross-point switches. And third, global fiber-to-the-home deployments which are poised to remain strong in calendar 2013 where we continue to maintain our number one market share position for fiber-to-the-home PMD in both GPON and GEPON markets.
Now I'd like to take a moment to discuss the emerging 100-gigabit Ethernet market where the continued explosion of IP traffic driven by growth in social media and video streaming, sourcing interconnects, from 10 and 40 gigabits per second to 100 gigabits per second in the enterprise. We are currently participating in this market by sampling our clock-and-data recovery or CDR devices for 100-gig optical transceivers and line cards. We have a number of design wins with Tier 1's as customers take advantage of our ultra low-power solutions.
FYI:Huawei and Vodafone trial 2Tbps fibre connection
January 29, 2013
Vodafone and Chinese telecoms equipment vendor Huawei have completed the world’s first successful field trials of 2Tbps optical fibre transmission technologies on Vodafone’s live network in Germany.
The field trial achieved 2Tbps transmission capabilities over 1,500km using a super-channel PDM-16QAM-based high spectral efficiency solution, and a second record-breaking transmission distance of 3,325km using a super-channel Nyquist PDM-QPSK-based ultra-long-haul solution.
Both transmissions were on a link with G.652 fibres and erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) without electrical regeneration.
The link used in the trial was on Vodafone’s live backbone network, passing through a few cities across middle and south Germany.
“We are at the forefront of global 100G deployments, and have taken the lead in delivering key breakthroughs in technologies beyond 100G,” said Jack Wang, president of Huawei’s transport network product line.
“Through collaboration with Vodafone and other leading international operators and customer-centric R&D, Huawei is always ready to build advanced optical networks for customers.”
