Research and Markets: Global Passive Optical Network Equipment Market 2011-2015 Discusses That One of the Main Challenges for This Market Is the Limited Infrastructure for Fiber-Optic Networks

Nov 09, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Passive Optical Network Equipment Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Passive Optical Network Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 29.28 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for high bandwidth. The Global Passive Optical Network Equipment market has also been witnessing the upgradation of network architecture. However, the limited infrastructure for fiber-optic networks could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this market space include Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., ZTE Corp., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Sumitomo Electric Networks Inc., and Cisco Systems Inc.

Other vendors mentioned in the report: Alcatel Lucent, Calix Network Inc., Freescale Semiconductor Inc., Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, PMC-Sierra Inc., Tellabs Inc., and UTStarcom Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: "Service providers and telecom operators are upgrading their network and infrastructure to meet the demand for video, online gaming, peer-to-peer (P2P) networking, and other bandwidth-intensive applications. This has increased the demand for Passive Optical Network (PON) equipment. Moreover, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) is gaining precedence over digital subscriber line (DSL) network architecture due to capacity constraints of the latter. In addition, the adoption of 100 Gbps optical fibers, components, and reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) equipment are expected to increase sharply in the next two years to upgrade optical fiber networks and replace non-optical fiber networks." According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the increasing demand for high bandwidth. Owing to the higher penetration rate of the internet and proliferation of bandwidth-hungry devices, the demand for optical networking equipment has increased to process this huge data traffic.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
