Report Information

SummaryThis report tracks transport hardware spending for specific types of equipment designed to meet the needs of a specific application. It also tracks WDM port shipments and market share. We collect shipment information and guidance directly 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.
MethodologyWe classify some of the vendor revenue and ports shipped tracked in the Transport 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 ShareReport includes revenue based market size and share for Compact Modular and Advanced Packet-OTN Switching segments, and detailed port based market size and vendor market share for 100G+ shipments.
DeliverablesExcel file with complete data set, PowerPoint summary, and Transport Equipment Active Insight, including a detailed summary of market performance for the report period.
Forecast5 Years with annual market size totals. No market share forecasts.
