  Infonetics: Carrier Ethernet Market to Top $39B by 2017

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- May 10, 2013

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest
Carrier Ethernet Equipment market size and forecast report, which tracks
investment, penetration, and use of carrier Ethernet products in service
provider networks.

ANALYST NOTE

“Carrier Ethernet is now a permanent, inseparable part of service provider
networks, and the market has reached a steady state of investment as a
result,” notes Michael Howard, principal analyst for carrier networks and
co-founder of Infonetics Research. “Though spending on legacy technologies
like SONET/SDH and WDM will decline, investment in IP routers, carrier
Ethernet switches, and Ethernet access devices will continue to rise, driven
by the move to IP NGN and, of course, growing traffic—particularly video
traffic.”

Howard adds: “We see the carrier Ethernet market growing slow but steady over
the next 5 years, reaching about $39 billion in 2017.”

CARRIER ETHERNET EQUIPMENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *The global carrier Ethernet equipment market declined 3% to $34 billion in
    2012, following a 13% spike in 2011
  *Spending on IP edge routers totaled $9.4 billion in 2012, the most of any
    carrier Ethernet equipment segment
  *Asia Pacific currently accounts for the greatest portion of carrier
    Ethernet equipment revenue, followed by EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and
    Africa); by 2017, Infonetics expects North America will have passed EMEA
    to become the 2^nd largest carrier Ethernet market
  *Infonetics projects Carrier Ethernet equipment ports will top 95 million
    worldwide by 2017, with 10 Gigabit Ethernet growing fast to pass 1 Gigabit
    Ethernet
