Tunable laser markets are driven by the marketplace needs of telecom providers. Using tunable lasers to cover several channels can reduce the high level of inventory needed to account for burned out lasers. Service providers continue to face the challenge of trying to deploy high-bandwidth networks at increasingly competitive costs. For this reason, tunable lasers will not be adopted unless they are price competitive with fixed length lasers. Some kind of parity needs to be achieved for the market to grow. Tunable lasers are sold to telecom systems vendors whose solutions enable telecom carriers to reduce network-operating costs associated with optical Dwdm deployments and provide a critical catalyst in enabling the growth of all-optical networks. Collectively, the features of reliability, cost, and broad tunability enable market development. ECLs promise to provide a cost-competitive, broadly tunable source laser that exceeds industry requirements. Industry adoption of broadly tunable source lasers depends on the evolution of tunable lasers that work. If these systems work as promised, they will drive an increase in the market share that broadly tunable lasers claim from fixed and READ MORE >
