LS Networks Optical: The Engine That Powers Us

Top 10 Optical Networking Solution Companies - 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly tested the resolve of each industry, and the optical networking industry is no different. The increasing demand for over-the-top (OTT) content has massively impacted the bandwidth capability provided by existing optical networks, forcing leading OTT platforms to throttle the quality of their video streams. In addition, the lockdown and remote working conditions that followed the outbreak of the pandemic led to a dogged battle between OTT platforms, virtual meeting platforms, and at-home gaming services for precious bandwidth. All these factors have emphasized the need for better optical networking solutions.

The increased bandwidth usage has turned all eyes toward 5G technology. While 5G technology was a hot topic even before the pandemic, the need for an upgrade has become even more urgent over the last year. However, a robust fiber optic network is of prime importance to experience the true potential of this technology. Evidently, fiber optic networks are the key to getting terabytes of data to consumers' homes and businesses instantly, as well as power the internet of things (IoT) and smart city applications over the same infrastructure. Additionally, newer, more improved fiber-optic cables provided by market-leading suppliers are easing the bandwidth crunch. As such, fiber optic networking has caught the attention of investors who are keen to capitalize on the opportunities presented by the technology.

As the number of optical networking solution providers in the market rises, businesses need to carefully evaluate their options before identifying the right partner for their needs. To simplify and assist CIOs in identifying the best optical networking solution providers, Enterprise Networking Magazine presents "Top 10 Optical Networking Solutions Providers – 2021."
