Optical Transport Market Growth Held Down by Legacy Equipment in 2012, According to Dell'Oro Group

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the total optical transport equipment market declined four percent in 2012 as service providers reduced their purchases of legacy SONET and SDH equipment.


(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20101012/SF80035LOGO) "An overall market decline of four percent was pretty good considering that legacy equipment sales declined 30 percent in the year," said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group. "Fortunately, optical network equipment continues to be needed even in soft economic times so long as consumers increase their use of high bandwidth access devices such as home broadband and smart phones. The demand for more bandwidth has driven an increased need for WDM equipment, which continued a positive trajectory in the year; growing 8 percent," added Mr. Yu.

Revenue from the North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) regions declined 12 percent in the year more than offsetting the growth in Asia Pacific and Rest of World. The top three vendors in the year were Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel-Lucent with a combined market revenue share of nearly 50 percent.
