Message: Cisco builds Internet for the Future approach on silicon, optics, and software

So if I am understanding this correctly, then Cisco's routers basically become an optical router containing silicon one chips. Now Cisco wants to get into the transceiver market. So since Cisco's Silcon One technology in its routers increases throughput, then the connections between routers becomes very important (maybe even further on a circuit board between Silicon One chips)? Poet's OI then should have an appeal to Cisco for a more complete solution. The OI would be scalable and alleviate any bottlenecks between transmitting and receiving devices/nodes also in a smaller footprint and at a reduced cost. As routers data flow continues to grow, Poet's OI can be scalable to what goes on inbetween for possible iterations of product evolvment.


I think once the bottlenecks are solved on the data-center/provider side, there will be a HUGE market for alll the similarly upgraded "last mile" infrastructure to follow. Then, it will be up to consumers to buy in (if they want to join the speed party) by upgrading scores of devices and in-home routers/WiFi stations, etc. That will be a MONSTER third (and multi-year) wave of revenue opportunities.
