Report Information
Summary This report tracks optical equipment spending and port shipments for specific types of equipment designed to meet the needs of a specific application. We collect shipment information and guidance from equipment companies as well as the supply chain each quarter, and estimate each companies shipments in each of the defined categories. Forecasts are based on expected spending and shipment trends for given applications on a regional basis
Methodology We classify some of the vendor revenue and ports shipped tracked in the Optical Hardware report according to the systems named in our vendor table. Companies may provide public guidance but in some cases we make estimates based on external sources, such as consumption of components from the supply chain
Market Size and Share Report includes revenue based market size and share for DCI and Advanced Optical Switching applications, and detailed port based market size and vendor market share for 100G shipments.
