Global data traffic continues to grow at more than 20 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), and this is fueling demand for 400G connections. The growth in global data traffic is largely driven by businesses and individuals accessing cloud services through mobile devices and fixed-line connections. Hyperscale data centers operated by a wide range of service providers, including Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft, require high bandwidth connections between servers, partly due to increased East-West traffic between servers caused by a shift toward virtualization using software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) between racks and between data centers.
