$11 billion market for optical transport DWDM by 2015


Total worldwide Optical DWDM equipment revenue is likely
to grow at 12 percent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next 5
years, reaching $11 billion.


Dell’Oro Group
expects that demand for high capacity wavelengths will drive up 40/100 Gbps
DWDM shipments to an average annual growth rate of 50 percent.


“We’re projecting a very strong market for both 40
and 100 gigabit DWDM,” said Jimmy Yu, sr. director of optical transport
research at Dell’Oro Group.


“In fact, we have raised our forecast of both 40 and
100 gigabit because the demand for high-speed interconnects continues to exceed
our expectations.  The adoption of 100 gigabit is occurring faster than
that of 40 gigabit, driving revenues to nearly $1 billion by 2013 and $2
billion by 2015.  We believe 40 gigabit will also maintain its momentum
through the forecast period since it’s likely to sustain a competitive price
advantage in ultra long haul spans,” added Yu.
