Web-Scale Private Builds

Web-scale private builds will surpass public-network build-outs.

In the submarine market, more than 50 percent of the data traversing both Trans-Atlantic and Trans-Pacific networks will be driven by Internet Content Providers (ICPs), with video and cloud services taking up a significant portion of the bandwidth. To support this, well-known ICPs will make bigger investments in established submarine cables, and will construct more private networks.

Loudon Blair, senior technology director, Network Architecture, Office of the CTO, Ciena, believes that in 2016, we will continue to see fundamental changes to the way networks are designed, architected and provisioned in order to meet the growing bandwidth requirements of today's web-scale world. The web-scale dynamics currently impacting the network include the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and virtualization, HD video and mobility. As organizations get more comfortable with these changes, we'll see them make adjustments based on lessons learned.

In this slideshow, Blair outlines networking trends that we can expect to start seeing in 2016.
