3Q18 Coherent Port Pricing Trends

This report examines trends in coherent port pricing from multiple vendors and for the industry overall. Since the introduction of 100G coherent optics in 2010, prices have dropped rapidly. Third generation coherent optics reduced the price of 100G-equivalent ports and 4th generation coherent optics will compress pricing further starting in 2020, especially as the technology spreads beyond the initial short-reach (80km) application.
