REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 20, 2013 /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 optical
transport equipment market declined four percent in 2012 as service providers
reduced their purchases of legacy SONET and SDH equipment.

"An overall market decline of four percent was pretty good considering that
legacy equipment sales declined 30 percent in the year," said Jimmy Yu, Vice
President of Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group.  "Fortunately,
optical network equipment continues to be needed even in soft economic times
so long as consumers increase their use of high bandwidth access devices such
as home broadband and smart phones.  The demand for more bandwidth has driven
an increased need for WDM equipment, which continued a positive trajectory in
the year; growing 8 percent," added Mr. Yu.

Revenue from the North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa)
regions declined 12 percent in the year more than offsetting the growth in
Asia Pacific and Rest of World.  The top three vendors in the year were
Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel-Lucent with a combined market revenue share of nearly
50 percent.
