re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode I don't believe I coined the term, but I did adopt it for this project. I've seen Carrier Ethernet Transport used by some, and packet-optical networking platform (P-ONP) has been put forth by Fujitsu.

I'm more than willing to call this something else, but hesitant to go for anything that's associated with a single vendor.

BTW, rocket scientists aren't particularly known for their creativity. Any (good) suggestions?

re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode
Ok, who's the frigging rocket scientist who coined the term "POTS" for a new market associated with Tier-1 carriers?

You couldn't create more confusing name ambiguity if you tried. Seriously. POTS?

re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode Clearly, the key here is to think of the acronym first, then make up words to fit it.

Avoiding anything vulgar, I'd suggest PONG, PLOP, or PLONK.

Finding actual words to fit these is an exercise left to the reader. I don't want my bosses thinking I actually spent time on this.

re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode The report numbers are correct. This was my fault, for doing fuzzy math and not accurately supplying numbers for each segment. I've corrected the story, and made the following changes:

The whole of the metro/regional optical transport market is $7.1b in 2007, rather than the $6.2 I originally posted.

Metro/regional WDM equipment sales, including ROADMs, increase from $2.3 billion in 2007 to $4.7 billion in 2012. And ROADM sales, including the POTS segment, go from $440 million in 2007 to $1.72 million in 2012.

CAGR numbers are correct and remain the same.

re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode I think you need a new CAGR calculator. 2007 to 2012 is 5 years yet in the article you give us the following:

Metro/regional optical market growing from 6.2B to 9B which you calculate as a CAGR of 4.8% (its actually 7.7%).

Metro/regional WDM growing from 1.9B to 3B which you peg as 15% CAGR (its actually 9.6%).

ROADMs grow from $440 million to $728 million ti which you give a CAGR of 31% when its 10.6%.

Really sloppy stuff for a report that I assume is not cheap.

OP,

Its was just a splash dial from a CMWI.

re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode "ROADM sales are expected to rise from $440 million in 2007 to $1.72 million in 2012 ..." - you mean $1.72 billion.

Sterling - no need to diss a reader who is quite correct. POTS is taken - let's try to find a new acronym. Make one up or use one that has already been coined - VZ calls this the Packet Optical Transport Platform (Packet OTP) - how about using that? Nothing proprietary about it and the OEM vendors like this nomenclature.

Also, you include AT&T along with BT and VZ in your examples of carriers that support this category. AT&T, really? Could you check again? Or, give us some more data based on RFPs?

re: Packet Optical Market Set to Explode Turing,
Really? How about Alloptical Transport Mechanisms (ATM). I don't think that one's taken...
