World Embedded Optics Market Report 2017-2026: Key Focus of Firms Expecting to Build their Businesses Around Next-Generation Optics

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Feb. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Embedded Optics Market: COBO and its Alternatives - 2017-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The researcher believes embedded optics is creating a major business opportunity for optical components, modules and communications chips companies. Embedded optics has been available as a niche technology for many years, but the recent success of the Consortium for on-Board Optics (COBO) has transported embedded optics into the limelight and has made embedded optics a key focus of firms expecting to build their businesses around next-generation optics.

It is tempting to treat COBO as just another MSA. However, the report believes that something more important is going on here. As we see it, COBO is more similar to the old ATM Forum; an organization that took data communications and telecommunications in a whole new direction.

We have been told for more than 15 years that an essential for high-speed modules is that they be pluggable, while embedded optics teaches completely the opposite doctrine. Embedded optics also imply an entirely new direction for switch design - one in which the optics and electronics are positioned in close proximity.

This report is designed for marketing, business development and product managers in components, modules and related businesses. It will help them understand the technological potential of embedded optics, how the COBO story will be sold to customers and how components firms will build their strategies for the COBO/embedded era - the post-pluggable era - as some people are calling it. The report will also be useful to professional investors in the optical networking sector who want to better understand what embedded optics will mean to their investments.
