Report Information

Report Information
Summary This 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.
Methodology We 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 Share Report includes quarterly revenue based market size and share for all categories in all regions.
Deliverables Excel file with complete data set, quarterly Powerpoint summary, and Active Insight. Includes a detailed summary of market performance for the report period.
Forecast 5 Years with annual market size totals. No market share forecasts.

SONET/SDH Legacy TDM switching systems without OTN or WDM functionality NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
WDM Metro WDM systems with lower density or with features optimized for shorter reach applications; Includes OTN and Ethernet switching systems; Includes common equipment revenue; May include proportion of revenue from one single product designed to address both metro and long haul. NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
WDM Long Haul WDM 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 haul NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
WDM SLTE WDM 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 services NA, EMEA, CALA, China, Japan, RoAPAC
Access Single 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
Aggregation Shelf 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
Edge Packet 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
Core Packet 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
