network hardware in the EMEA region, but the market is becoming
saturated and is witnessing fewer investments by telecom operators as a
result of the ongoing economic crisis. However, Central and Eastern
Europe are experiencing high market growth. Telecom operators in Western
Europe have therefore started investing in these regions to meet their
high bandwidth requirements. Hence, high growth in Central and Eastern
Europe is a major trend in the Optical Network Hardware market in the
According to the report, the most important force driving the adoption
of optical network equipment is the need for more bandwidth for
activities such as web surfing, e-mail browsing, file downloading,
online gaming, internet protocol video on demand (IPVOD), and videophone
usage. Optical fiber cables provide the speed, agility, and
accessibility required by service providers to offer services that
