|X, an emerging vendor of metro WDM systems is on the look out for expansion opportunities in adjacent segments. Examples could be WDM-oriented, such as systems for long haul transmission, but also more disruptive by investments in segments making heavy use of optical transport, e.g. video distribution. |
Examples of segments that may spur additional WDM traffic, and therefore of interest to find emerging companies within are
- (A) Systems for dynamic load balancing of data traffic between 3G/4G & WLAN radio access,
- (B) Video distribution networking and caching combined with consumer BB access (Applications: CATV, IPTV, VoD in BB access networks), and
- (C) Cloud access - Transport networks specially designed for enterprise IT system accessing virtualized resources in data centers.
(Ref. B below (WLAN offload) i.e. to control data traffic between traditional mobile networks and WLAN; it might exist dynamic traffic load between 3G and 4G as well but the most important is how intelligent packet data networks can operate with mobile networks.)
Could I have the names of emerging companies of interest in this context?
Many thanks in advance.
