This article introduces technologies that will lead to future photonic networks that support ultrahigh capacities of 100 Gbit/s or more and services with low-latency end-to-end paths (huge-bandwidth services) as a common platform around 2020. Such networks will have on-demand, economical, and highly reliable access and core networks. Technology trends, requirements to be met, and challenges to be overcome are also described.
