REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, PON Optical Line Terminals (OLTs) revenue increased over 50 percent in the first quarter of this year, driven by a surge in EPON and GPON deployments. This increase occurred at the same time that Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS) revenue increased by 30 percent.

"Demand for PON and Cable access equipment was strong in the first quarter, a trend we expect to continue throughout 2008," said Tam Dell'Oro, President of Dell'Oro Group. "PON is being driven by new GPON deployments, especially by Verizon, as well as the resumption of EPON deployments in Japan after a pause in 2007 when operators planned for next generation networks. Cable operators are resuming purchases after a slow 2007 when most operators were planning for new DOCSIS 3.0 CMTS equipment, which is now available from most Cable access vendors," Dell'Oro added.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
