What is this white paper about?

Data transport capacity demands are soaring due to high-bandwidth applications such as big data, video streaming, 5G, and IoT. Meanwhile, it has become a critical requirement to reduce OPEX in telecom and data center system deployments. This has led to a demand for low power consumption devices, and DWDM/OTN equipment manufacturers are offering Green technology solutions.

Operators and data centers are looking for ways to save costs and DWDM/OTN equipment manufacturers are directly addressing those concerns, by building more efficient and smaller form factor technologies, which reduce real estate requirements and decrease cooling needs.

Low power consumption ensures other benefits as well - longer power supply duration, lower heat dissipation, and less electromagnetic flux, all of which prevent damage to the operations and communications systems.

Read how PacketLight supports this requirement by building highly efficient DWDM/OTN devices.
