Introduction

The demand by Cloud Data Centers for faster data delivery speeds at cost-effective prices is growing rapidly, where higher speeds are necessary to process the current explosion in traffic. The pace of cloud data center capacity expansion has created a fundamental change in the traditional model of network equipment development and deployment. Equipment vendors need to dramatically cut development cycles while bringing cost optimized solutions to market from day one.

Vendors find themselves struggling to get functional prototypes to market on time and within budget when sourcing components from multiple suppliers, each with different schedules, supply chains and corporate strategies. To solve these challenges, MACOM is focused on complete chip-set solutions that enable our customers to deliver optical transceivers that meet the requirements of today’s cloud data center deployments.

By building a comprehensive portfolio of complementary products that enable our customers’ optical transceiver applications, MACOM, as a merchant supplier, has aligned our strategy with the goals of our customers: To offer the highest performing, cost-effective component solutions for next-generation networks.
