Free Space Optics Communication Market: Views Sought On New Approach

Free space optics is an optical communication technology, which is responsible for transmitting light beams in free space for broadband communications. This optical communication technology offers various advantages including, high-speed data transmission rate, installation, and protected data transfer. The technology is utilized in deep-space probes, satellite links, for aircraft communication as well as for communication in UAVs and remote areas.

Proliferation of internet usage is one of the major factors driving growth of the global market

Major factors driving growth of the global free space optics market is, increasing internet traffic. Factors such as utilization of high-bandwidth applications, expanding online video content, and rising number of mobile internet users will lead to rise in the global IP traffic during the forecast period. Adoption of smartphones is increasing, which is leading to increasing mobile advertising, including SMS & MMS advertising, mobile web, mobile video & television, and several online advertising channels

Global Free Space Optics Communication Market: Regional Insights

The global free space optics communication market is segmented on the basis of regions into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to increasing number of internet users in this region along with growing 5G pilot projects in the region. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, in 2017, Asia Pacific accounted for over 50% of internet users in the world, of which China accounted for the largest share in the regional market, accounting for around 26% share of global internet users. This in turn, is expected to boost adoption of better wireless infrastructure. For instance, China Telecom Corporation Ltd. established a new 5G base station in Lanzhou, in December 2017, to expand 5G pilot projects in China. Moreover, government initiative plays a major role for growth of the 5G infrastructure in Asia Pacific region. For instance, China government is expected initiate commercial rollouts by 2020. With 3,400–3,600 MHz band, the country’s first trials will be conducted in 2020. The 3,300–3,400 MHz, 4,400–4500 MHz, and 4,800–4,990 MHz bands are also under consideration. For high internet speeds, China government has plans on using spectrum around 25 gigahertz and 40 gigahertz frequencies. This in turn, is expected to boost growth of regional market over the forecast period.

Global Free Space Optics Communication Market: Competitive Background

Major players operating in the free space optics communication market are Koninklijke Philips N.V., General Electric Co., Bytelight, Inc., Panasonic Corp., Purelifi Ltd., LVX System, Oledcomm, Lightbee Corp., Outstanding Technology Corp., Ibsentelecom Ltd., and Supreme Architecture Inc.

Semiconductor stocks are representative of the growth engine in the market. They are cyclical and technology driven.

So when the Semiconductors Sector (SMH) slows down, investors should take note.

This is exactly what occurred last year. The Semiconductors Sector was slowed at the price area of the year 2000 highs (1). And it was a warning sign for the late 2018 stock market correction.

So where…

Chinese spy chips are found in hardware used by Apple, Amazon, Bloomberg says; Apple, AWS say no way
Data center equipment run by Amazon Web Services and Apple may have been subject to surveillance from the Chinese government via a tiny microchip inserted during the equipment manufacturing process, according to a Bloomberg BusinessWeek report on Thursday. The claims in the report have been strongly disputed by the technology giants.
By Kate Fazzini

The chips, which Bloomberg said have been the subject of a top secret U.S. government investigation starting in 2015, were used for gathering intellectual property and trade secrets from American companies and may have been introduced by a Chinese server company called Super Micro that assembled machines used in the centers.

Apple, AWS and Super Micro dispute the report. Apple said it did not find the chips as asserted by BusinessWeek — which cited anonymous government and corporate sources. Super Micro reportedly denied that it introduced the chips during the manufacturing.

Shares of Super Micro plummeted more than 40 percent following the report. Trading of the small server company’s common stock on the Nasdaq was suspended on Aug. 23 after repeatedly missing SEC filing deadlines. Super Micro shares now trade on over-the-counter markets.

Apple shares edged 1 percent lower in Thursday trading, while Amazon fell about 1.5 percent.

Asked by CNBC for comment, Apple reiterated its strong denials of the report, stating: “We are deeply disappointed that in their dealings with us, Bloomberg’s reporters have not been open to the possibility that they or their sources might be wrong or misinformed. Our best guess is that they are confusing their story with a previously reported 2016 incident in which we discovered an infected driver on a single Super Micro server in one of our labs. That one-time event was determined to be accidental and not a targeted attack against Apple.”

AWS has also denied the report, telling CNBC in a statement, “As we shared with Bloomberg BusinessWeek multiple times over the last couple months, at no time, past or present, have we ever found any issues relating to modified hardware or malicious chips in SuperMicro motherboards in any Elemental or Amazon systems.‎”

A statement from the China foreign ministry said “China is a resolute defender of cybersecurity.”

According to Bloomberg, the problem was discovered in 2015 and confirmed by independent security investigators hired by the cloud providers. Super Micro servers were removed by Apple that year, according to the report, which also asserts ties with Super Micro were severed in 2016. A follow-up investigation involving several government agencies was conducted, as well. Apple and AWS deny these moves involving Super Micro were related to chip worries. No consumer data was stolen as part of the alleged campaign, according to the report.
