Optical Transport Shines

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- A newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reveals that revenues from total worldwide sales of WDM, SONET/SDH and optical switch equipment grew 8 percent over the first quarter of 2007, and reached its highest quarterly revenue level in over five years. The report indicates that all major regions of the world contributed to the second quarter's growth.

"We continue to see the global demand for optical transport equipment intensify, as service providers prepare their networks for a growing broadband subscriber base and higher bandwidth services," said Jason Suey, Analyst for Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group. "Although the strongest growth is occurring within WDM Metro, demand for SONET/SDH equipment remains robust, which is helping drive the worldwide optical transport market," Suey added.
