According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the Optical Transport equipment market declined approximately five percent in the first half of 2012 from year-ago levels to $6.1 billion.
“The optical market contracted in the first half of 2012 due to lower spending in the mature markets of North America and EMEA,“ said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport research at Dell’Oro Group. “The emerging regions of Asia Pacific and Latin America, however, did grow as service providers in the regions continued to expand network capacity,“ added Mr. Yu.
