Coherent Pricing Trends

In January 2019 we published a Coherent Port Pricing Trends report that showed pricing dropping at a rate of about 26% per year.

In this latest report, we examine pricing stability over the last 12 months as new 3rd generation coherent systems entered the market, and as the deployment of 200Gbps and higher optics ramped around the world.
