Report Information

Summary This report tracks optical equipment spending by end customer market type. We collect shipment information and guidance from individual equipment companies each quarter, and allocate each company’s revenue according to each end market. This shipment revenue for all end markets is presented in aggregate (except Cloud & Colo, where market share is shown), but it is compiled on a per company basis. Forecasts are based on expected spending trends by customer market on a regional basis.
Methodology All revenue shipped to a given network operator is classified as a single category. For example, all revenue shipped by Ciena to AT&T, or Nokia to Telefonica is classified as Incumbent revenue. Individual customers are listed in each of the end market categories. This approach reduces subjectivity, as vendors do not know what application equipment assumes when it is shipped to a given customer. The results provide a more accurate estimate of how much equipment is purchased from each end customer market.
Market Size and Share Report includes revenue based market size for all end customer markets in all regions. Market share for the Cloud and Colo segment is broken out on a worldwide basis.
Deliverables Excel file with complete data set, Powerpoint summary, and Optical Equipment Active Insight, including a detailed summary of market performance for the report period.
Forecast 5 Years with annual market size totals. No market share forecasts.
