"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.
