  Reports Infonetics

BOSTON -- October 23, 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 switching is experiencing breakout growth in North America and EMEA
(Europe, Middle East, Africa), where service providers are adopting integrated
WDM and OTN switching and rolling out 100G coherent in the core,” notes Andrew
Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics Research.

Schmitt adds: “Meanwhile, P-OTS growth in the first half of 2013 was healthy
as a result of tier-1 carriers ramping spending versus 2012. We’re seeing some
of the SONET/SDH spending that went away come back in the form of increased
packet-optical activity.”

OTN AND P-OTS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *In the 1^st half of 2013 (1H13), worldwide OTN revenue (OTN transport and
    switching equipment) was up 23% from 1H12, to $3.9 billion
  *OTN switching spending in North America more than tripled in 1H13, growing
    80% from a year ago
  *Fujitsu’s OTN hardware revenue market share spiked 152% in 1H13 from 1H12
  *Globally, P-OTS equipment revenue is up 41% year-over-year in 1H13
  *Incumbents Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena, Cisco, Fujitsu, and Tellabs are the
    P-OTS market leaders, but new players BTI, Cyan, Ericsson, and Transmode
    are challenging with pure-play P-OTS platforms
