REDWOOD CITY, USA: In a newly released Optical forecast report by DellOro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, total worldwide Optical Transport equipment revenue is forecast to resume positive growth in 2010, reaching $16.6 billion in 2014.
“We forecast positive growth of the optical equipment market this year and through 2014,” said Jimmy Yu, Director of Optical Transport research at DellOro Group.
“We should see a couple of the optical equipment segments benefit from the focus that telecom service providers are placing on high bandwidth consumer services such as wireless 3G data and video. As these services expand, we predict more 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps wavelengths will be used to bring the necessary capacity into the backbone network cost effectively. We also forecast that nearly one-third of DWDM long haul and WDM metro revenues will be 40/100 Gbps DWDM by 2014.”
