GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Optical Transport Network (OTN) Equipment. The global market for Optical Transport Network Equipment is projected to reach US$16.8 billion by 2020, driven by the explosive growth in network traffic, strong demand for higher data transmission speeds, and continuous rollout of high-speed 40G and 100G networks.

Optical Transport Network (OTN) Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Optical network traffic continues to rise due to the increasing demand for greater bandwidth from both consumer and business users. The scenario is driving carriers to expand network capacities and enhance transmission speeds. Also, the growing desire of carriers to effectively manage network costs is driving the shift towards multi-purpose Optical Transport Network (OTN) and Ethernet packet-based network architectures, away from the SONET/SDH-based networks. OTN, in particular, holds an edge over SONET/SDH architecture, due to the promise of higher efficiency and greater convergence, which enables effective handling of high-bandwidth services. The need to offer support for high-speed services and address congestion in mobile networks is driving service providers to deploy OTN, thus benefiting sales of OTN equipment. Increased spending on 100G optical networks is a major growth driver in the OTN Equipment market, particularly in North America.

Demand for optical network equipment is also being driven by the need to upgrade infrastructure to support bandwidth intensive technologies, such as “Internet of Things”. With the Internet rapidly emerging as the linchpin for connecting multiple devices and machinery, data volumes are witnessing explosive growth. For instance, massive numbers of nodes are being connected to the Internet, as electronic devices such as smart refrigerators, cars, personal fitness equipment, and smartphones, among others, hook up to the Internet. Virtually every piece of consumer electronic device and industrial machinery are being integrated with networked sensors for IP compatibility. The data generated by machine-to-machine (M2M) communications adds to the already existing traditional data such as videos, music, and movies, among others. The resulting congestion in the network necessitates the upgrade of networks. The scenario is poised to benefit investments in upgrading OTN network equipment.

As stated by the new market research report on Optical Transport Network (OTN) Equipment, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 17.1% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by the booming telecom sector, specifically in India and China, increasing use of 3G and 4G compatible smartphones, and rising demand for IP-based video, voice, and data services.

Major players covered in the report include ADTRAN Inc., ADVA Optical Networking SE, Alcatel-Lucent, Aliathon Technology Ltd., Ciena Corporation, Cisco Systems Inc., ECI Telecom Ltd., Ericsson, Fujitsu Limited, Huawei Technologies, Infinera Corporation, JDS Uniphase Corporation, NEC Corporation, Tellabs Inc., and ZTE Corporation.
