ICC News From 2019 to 2021, my country has made great achievements in 5G construction. As of the end of March this year, there were more than 819,000 5G base stations, accounting for more than 70% of the world. In 2021, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released the “Dual Gigabit” network coordinated development action plan to further enhance the coverage of 5G/F5G dual Gigabit networks, requiring the construction of more than 10 million ports of 10G PON and above by 2023, so that 5G networks can be deployed in township-level areas. And key administrative village coverage, gigabit broadband users exceeded 30 million households. The dual-gigabit plan is expected to bring a new round of opportunities to the optical fiber communication industry, and the demand for core components such as high-speed optical modules, optical devices and optoelectronic chips will also benefit from this round of opportunities.
As a well-known brand in the optical fiber communication industry, Shaoxing Zhongke Communication Equipment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Zhongke Communication) has deployed a large number of high-speed optical modules and optical devices in the fields of fiber-to-the-home, 4G/5G wireless base stations and data centers at home and abroad. Wang Miaoqing, general manager of Zhongke Communication, said in a recent interview with Xunshi that the company is specialized in the design of high-end optical chips and optical components, key optical components for 3D sensing, optical modules (155M-400G) and intelligent commissioning systems. A high-tech enterprise of all-round optical communication integrating R&D, manufacturing and sales.
2020 is a milestone in the company’s development history. The company’s products have achieved rapid growth in multiple markets such as operator 5G networks, next-generation optical fiber access and data centers, and revenue has set a record. At the same time, the company has also won the 2020 national-level specialization and new “little giant” enterprise, which is the only selected optical communication enterprise in Shaoxing.
According to reports, in the optical fiber access market, in 2020, the OLT-side GPON/EPON module products of Zhongke Communication will continue to be shipped in batches, and the 10G XGS-PON products will be mainly shipped to overseas markets in Europe, America, India and Japan, and the revenue from overseas markets will account for the company’s revenue. 60%. In terms of 5G fronthaul, compared with color light modules, operators also have strong demand for gray light modules. With years of R&D and manufacturing of optical modules and optical devices, Zhongke Communication has realized gray light 5G fronthaul light with high-quality products. Large-scale shipments of modules in overseas markets, and IPL 5G fronthaul optical modules have also made breakthroughs in the operator market. In the datacom market, 10G/25G SR/AOC sales also increased significantly. The above products are the main factors behind the company’s record performance in 2020.
Mr. Wang believes that with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic at home and abroad in 2020, the demand for telecommuting from home and video conferencing has surged, and network bandwidth is facing distance pressure, and there is an urgent need to expand and upgrade bandwidth capabilities. The new crown epidemic has accelerated the growth of global Internet traffic, which will enable the large-scale construction of data centers, home broadband and 5G bearer, and provide growth drivers for the future optical module and optical device industries.
According to LightCounting’s forecast, the global Ethernet optical module revenue CAGR is expected to reach more than 10% from 2021 to 2026, 100G is expected to remain stable, and 400G/800G will become the main driving force. By 2026, global Ethernet optical module revenue is expected to reach $6.8 billion.
In the future, the market will be accompanied by fierce competition and emerging opportunities. Zhongke Telecom will plan for the future ahead of schedule. The company has nearly 500 employees and a R&D team of nearly 70 people. The headquarters and manufacturing base are located in Shaoxing, with high-end purification workshops. The company has Passed ISO9001 quality management, ISO14001 environmental management and ISO45001 occupational health and safety management, ISO10012 measurement management system certification, various optical modules and optical device products have obtained TUV, CE, FCC, RoHS, LVD and other certifications. The company has set up a research and development center in Hangzhou, and the research and development team is all from well-known optical communication companies in the industry, with more than ten years of research and development experience.
Mr. Wang said that with the development of 5G base stations, new data center infrastructure and dual-gigabit networks, the demand for optical modules and optical device technology products has been continuously released. In order to grasp the future market base, Zhongke Communication will spend 120 million yuan in planning and construction in 2021. The optical module industrial park of more than 30,000 square meters is expected to be put into use by the end of 2022, which will further expand the production scale of high-speed optical modules and optical devices, accelerate the research and development progress of the optical chip business, and strengthen the vertical integration capabilities of Zhongke Communication.
Xunshi believes that the construction of 5G base stations will continue to expand in 2021. The demand for 10G PON next-generation optical fiber access in parks, commercial buildings and schools will be released, which will accelerate the development of F5G optical fiber gigabit networks. The number of ultra-large data centers continues to grow. Under the influence of dual gigabit, the optical communication industry will usher in greater market visibility in the future, and drive the diversification of the optical communication supply chain, empowering vertically integrated manufacturers represented by Zhongke Communication to be more powerful. market space.
