Infonetics Forecasts Optical Transport Network (OTN) Market to Top $13 Billion by 2017 Business Wire BOSTON -- March 27, 2013 Market research firm Infonetics Research released its latest OTN and Packet Optical Hardware report, which tracks optical transport network (OTN) switching and transport equipment and packet-optical transport systems (P-OTS). ANALYST NOTE “OTN spending, and particularly OTN switching, is benefiting from a rise in investment in coherent core networks,” explains Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics Research. “Many service providers rolling out 100G are using the opportunity to upgrade their optical switching infrastructure. In the metro, investment is rapidly rotating away from legacy SONET/SDH to packet-optical transport systems that combine optical and Ethernet circuit switching in the same chassis.” OTN AND P-OTS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS *The OTN transport and switching equipment market grew 8% in 2012, to $7.3 billion *The bulk of the growth comes from the OTN switching segment, up 46% in 2012 from 2011 *Infonetics forecasts the OTN equipment market to top $13 billion in 2017 *Having embraced OTN technology early, North America leads the world in overall OTN deployments, while China is the frontrunner in OTN switching deployments *Infinera was #1 in OTN switching in North America in 2012, despite only recognizing revenue in the 2^nd half of the year *Sales of P-OTS gear climbed 7% in 2012, to $1.2 billion *Tellabs and Fujitsu together hold the lion’s share of the P-OTS market as a result of their aggressive deployments at Verizon, while Ciena, Cisco, and Alcatel-Lucent remain in a tight 3-way horse race REPORT SYNOPSIS Infonetics’ biannual OTN and packet optical report provides worldwide and regional market size, vendor market share, forecasts through 2017, analysis, and trends for OTN transport and switching hardware, including metro edge and metro regional port revenue forecasts by type and speed.
