Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest OTN and Packet Optical Hardware market share, size, and forecasts report, which tracks optical transport network (OTN) transport equipment, OTN switching equipment, and packet-optical transport systems (P-OTS).
“Though OTN switching currently makes up only a small portion of the overall OTN market and deployments have been centered mostly in China, we anticipate breakout growth for this segment as operators in EMEA and North America adopt integrated WDM+OTN switching as part of the roll out of 100G coherent technology in regional and core networks,” notes Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics Research. “We’re forecasting the OTN switching segment to grow at a 5-year compound annual growth rate of 28% from 2012 to 2016.”
OTN AND P-OTS MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Infonetics expects the OTN market (OTN transport and switching equipment) to grow at 13% CAGR through 2016, slightly faster than the underlying WDM market it mostly overlaps
- Once final figures are in for the full year 2012, Infonetics expects OTN revenue to total $7 billion, or 65% of all optical equipment spending
- The market for P-OTS equipment is anticipated to be $1.26 billion in 2012, with 55% of revenue coming from metro edge P-OTS and 45% from metro regional P-OTS
- Incumbent vendors Tellabs, Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Fujitsu, and Ciena are the P-OTS market leaders, but new players including BTI, Cyan, Transmode, and Ericsson are challenging with pure-play P-OTS platforms
Infonetics’ Andrew Schmitt is hosting a 100G webinar on March 5, “100G Optics: Why Operators Are Upgrading Now.” To learn more or attend, visit http://bit.ly/W1E83Q.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
