Timothy Munks

Senior Principal Analyst

Tim focuses on high speed optics, coherent modems, and optical line systems used in data center interconnect, metro, long haul, and subsea DWDM optical networks. He provides insights and analysis of key trends, equipment forecasts, and market share by leveraging excellent relationships with CSPs, data center operators, network equipment manufacturers, and merchant suppliers.

Tim joined IHS Markit (now Omdia) in 2018 as a principal analyst covering 100G+ high speed coherent modems and optical network technology after 30 years in the industry. Before this, Tim worked six years with Acacia Communications as a sales director and a product line manager for silicon photonics. Prior to that, he worked five years for Santur/NeoPhotonics and worked 12 years with JDSU (now Lumentum). He has developed a deployed bandwidth model for use with multi-rate coherent modems and enjoys hosting webinars. Tim studied physics and electrical engineering and holds a Master of Science in electrical engineering with emphasis in electromagnetics and optics.
