This report examines the product segment that embeds optical transceiver technologies into enclosed cables that hide the high-speed optics behind two transceiver ends with an electrical interconnect presented to the outside. This factor enables creating high aggregate data rate links at costs significantly below that of two separate connectorized transceivers and fibers.
Presented are data on annual AOC shipments, revenues and average selling prices for 2011-2013 and we forecast the market for 2014-2020. We analyze technologies, market trends, protocol transitions, data rates, MSAs for InfiniBand, Ethernet and other protocols as well as potential applications of AOCs in storage systems.
Additional analysis is included for the emerging Video and Consumer AOC segment using HDMI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt and USB.
