Report Information

SummaryThis report tracks service provider optical and packet transport revenue across all regions and equipment types. We collect shipment information and guidance directly from individual equipment companies each quarter, and allocate each company’s revenue to regions and product categories. Forecasts are based first on expected spending trends in each region and the equipment types with those regions.
MethodologyWe classify vendor revenue into specific categories 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 and end user feedback.
Market Size and ShareReport includes revenue based market size and share for all categories in all regions.
DeliverablesExcel file with complete data set, quarterly 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.

WDM Long HaulWDM systems with higher density or with features optimized for longer reach applications; Includes OTN and Ethernet switching systems; Includes common equipment revenue; may include proportion of revenue from one product designed to address both metro and long haulNA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
WDM SLTEWDM equipment used for submarine applications; Includes both line-terminating equipment (dry plant) as well as common equipment (wet plant); Does not include installation or maintenance servicesNA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
AccessSingle RU packet equipment at end customers / Enterprises. Includes carrier Ethernet switches that provide circuit emulation and Layer 3 capabilities.NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
AggregationShelf based packet equipment deployed by service providers to end customers / Enterprises. Includes devices that provide carrier Ethernet and Layer 3 capabilities.NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
EdgePacket equipment deployed at the edge of the network with more functionality. Edge routers connect the core network to enterprise networks and access networks.NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
CorePacket equipment at the center of the metro/core network that routes all services in the area. Core routers do not generally distinguish between low speed and high speed, as all interfaces are equivalent. Speeds supported are generally higher than 100GbE.NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
