REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 20, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  In a recently published report from Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the total wavelength division multiplexer (WDM) equipment market grew 23 percent sequentially in the second quarter 2015.

The vendor landscape is highly fragmented with over twenty equipment manufacturers actively selling WDM Metro equipment. In the quarter, only three vendors—Ciena, Huawei, and ZTE—grabbed more than 10 percent share of the market each, and held a combined market share of 50 percent.

"Demand for WDM equipment in metro applications is reaching new levels," said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group. "We think this is just the beginning and we're very excited by all the market activity such as vendor consolidation, new market development, and product innovation. We're predicting the WDM Metro market to grow 10 percent for full year 2015 driven by rising use of WDM systems for mobile and fixed backhaul as well as data center interconnect. We anticipate 100 Gbps wavelength shipments to grow through the year, and for 200 Gbps wavelength shipments to reach significant volumes by year-end," added Mr. Yu.
