Total Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) Equipment Market Revenues Projected to Surpass Year 2000 Peak, According to Dell’Oro Group
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the total WDM market which is comprised of both metro and long-haul applications grew 14 percent year-over-year in 3Q 2012 and is forecast to reach $8 billion for the full year 2012. It is expected to climb further in 2013.
“It was the year 2000 when the WDM market peaked at $7.7 billion and then promptly burst downwards to $1.8 billion,” said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport research at Dell’Oro Group. “Since then, it’s taken twelve long years to reach this milestone but we are finally on a path to best this previous revenue peak and to attain a new record revenue marker for the WDM market. We’re forecasting the total WDM market to be $8 billion for the full year 2012 as a larger number of service providers roll out 40 and 100 gigabit DWDM wavelengths to meet the rising demand for bandwidth,” added Mr. Yu.
