Research and Markets: Global Passive Optical Network Equipment Market 2014-2018: Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei Technologies, Mitsubishi Electric, Sumitomo Electric Networks and ZTE Dominates the Industry

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/k4fr8t/global_passive) has announced the addition of the "Global Passive Optical Network Equipment Market 2014-2018: Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei Technologies, Mitsubishi Electric, Sumitomo Electric Networks and ZTE Dominates the Industry" report to their offering.

The increasing growth of PON equipment in the APAC region is the major growth driver. The mass adoption of electronic gadgets and the data traffic generated by customers are driving the end-users in the country to switch from a wireless to a wired optical medium.

Recently, there has been an upsurge of deployment of higher capacities because of the deployment of 10G and 40G optical transmission networks. Similarly, many leading vendors such as Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei announced they are taking a step further in the future by innovating and conducting trials for capacities as large as 400G and 10 petabits per second transmission. Though currently the capacities are much larger than required, they are still considered as a future investment considering the huge expansion in data traffic.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is declining the ASP of PON equipment because of the falling price of the semiconductor optical devices and the highly competitive and cost sensitive buyers and vendors in the Optical industry.

The key vendors dominating this space are

  • Alcatel-Lucent
  • Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.
  • Mitsubishi Electric Corp.
  • Sumitomo Electric Networks Inc.
  • ZTE Corp.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are

  • Adtran Inc.
  • Calix Network Inc.
  • Cisco Systems Inc.
  • Dasan Networks Inc.
