With the rapid development of 5G networks, network operators are also beginning to fully deploy 5G networks. At present, China’s 5G mobile phones are coming soon. As an indispensable optical module component in 5G network communication devices, it also plays an important role. It can be said that network development and optical modules are interconnected. In the past, optical modules mainly used 1G and 10G optical modules due to network speed limitations and network equipment configuration. With the operation and popularization of 5G networks, the network speed is increasing. This requires more and faster memory for the hardware modules built by network base stations. That is to say, in future network development, the 40G and 100G optical modules will be more The more mentioned and widely used, these high-speed modules will play a greater role in the future network construction, the arrival of the 5G market means that the demand for 40G and 100G high-speed optical modules will be in the future, currently Its growth shows a rapid growth trend.
The research report of China Telecom pointed out that the 5G network base station deployment, optical module will be the direct beneficiary of this project. We assume that the 5G base station is 2-3 times that of 4G, and then consider the mid/return module, which means that this base station will bring tens of millions of 25GHz high-speed optical module usage. The 5G flat architecture will bring huge capacity and cost pressure to the traditional network base station. To solve this basic problem, it needs to rely on a large number of high-speed optical modules for support, such as 40G and 100G.
It can be seen that, in the future optical communications 5G chip integration will be a development direction. For the 5G optical module solution, the current mainstream is the 100G optical module device. Silicon photonics technology can be used to bring all components together, reducing the cost of the device while doubling the amount of data transferred. According to relevant reports, the demand for 100G optical modules is expected to surpass the demand for 10G optical modules in 2020, becoming the mainstream optical module in the market, and will continue to grow in the next few years; 200G and 400G optical modules are gradually introduced to the market.
The 5G era has already begun, and the optical module industry is an area with a considerable economic aggregate. fiber-mart.com is committed to combining with the 5G market. At present, 40G and 100G optical module products have achieved very mature results. I believe this product can better adapt to the market demand in the future and build a strong 5G network together. so that more people enjoy the fast 5G network services.
