Cignal AI has issued the 4Q19 Transport Customer Markets Report. The report tracks optical and packet transport hardware shipments across four global regions to Incumbent, Wholesale, Cloud & Colo, Cable MSO & Broadband, Enterprise & Government customers, details vendor market share for equipment sales to each market and provides forecasts by region and customer type.

Highlights this quarter:

  • Cloud & Colo optical spending growth cooled in the 4th quarter but still led growth for the year.
  • Ciena’s optical market share of Cloud & Colo flattened close to 50% worldwide.
  • North American Incumbent and Cable/MSO optical spending came back strong in the 4th quarter, ending the year with growth.
  • Worldwide Incumbent and Enterprise & Government packet transport sales were up slightly for the year. All other customer segments purchased less packet transport equipment in 2019.
  • Cisco led the worldwide Cloud & Colo packet market in 2019, controlled by three companies (Cisco, Juniper, and Huawei).
