Market research firm Infonetics
Research today released preliminary analysis from its 3rd quarter
2012 (3Q12) Optical
Network Hardware vendor market share report. (Full report with
forecasts and detailed analysis will be published November 27.)
"Investment in new WDM
gear is growing, but it isn't growing fast enough to offset the
accelerated declines in SONET/SDH,"
Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics
Research. "SONET/SDH spending hit another all-time low in the third
quarter, as architectural shifts in wireless backhaul quicken its
transition into obsolescence. Carriers aren't allocating scarce capital
to out-of-date equipment."
continues: "On a brighter note, there's an investment cycle set to begin
next year in the core network that's based on 100G
coherent and supported by the massive ramp in 100G prototyping and
trialing activities that are already underway worldwide."
