Lightwave writes about our 2Q18 Optical Application report and changes to the 2018 200G & 400G forecast.

Cignal AI reports that Ciena’s coherent 400G port shipments were “doing well” in the second quarter of 2018 against a backdrop of overall optical network hardware sales declines. The market research firm notes that 400G capabilities based on DSPs from Acacia Communications, Huawei, Nokia, and NTT Electronics should reach the market within the next six months to provide operators with additional options.
