Network Transmission Market Report and Analysis of Proposed Nokia / Alcatel-Lucent Merger
Nokia has recently announced that it is buying French telecom equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent for $16.6 billion. The merger of Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent will no doubt change the competitive landscape of the optical networking industry. A new report provides a quantitative forecast of a major part of the optical networking market that Nokia is buying into from its proposed purchase of Alcatel-Lucent.
According to a new market report “Network Transmission Market Analysis and Equipment Forecast: ROADMS, DWDM, Routers and Switches and the Impact of Net Neutrality”, the worldwide ROADM market will grow from $5.4 billion in 2015 to $8.8 billion in 2020. In addition to the ROADMs market, the report provides detailed analysis and forecasts for DWDM, Routers, and switches in North America and Worldwide.
This report is focused on forecasting demand for specific types of carrier-class network transmission equipment: ROADMS, DWDM, Routers and Switches.
To make that forecast it will investigate the demand parameters of this situation, which are primarily traffic forecasts. After reviewing the regulatory climate (Net Neutrality), and the market demand, the Report will look at capital expenditure forecasts as a surrogate for Supply. Then it will provide forecasts for various classes (ROADMs, DWDM, Routers and Switches) of optical network equipment in this environment.
Network Transmission Market Analysis Provides:
- Equipment descriptions and sales forecasts for ROADMS, DWDM, Routers, and Switches through 2020.
- A discussion of Net Neutrality, the players, the issues, and its impact on equipment sales.
- Traffic forecasts for the North American Internet through 2020
- N.A. and World forecasts for Mobile Traffic, Advanced Access Architecture lines(FiOS, U-Verse, Google), High-Speed lines (XDSL and cable modems) and International Traffic (North America only) through 2020.
- Capital Expenditure forecasts for the major telecom companies through 2020.
- Listing of Major Vendors in the Transmission Equipment space.
This report covers the very current topic of Network Neutrality, which is much in the headlines as this is being written, and its forecasted impact on network equipment sales.
The study also examines the network traffic and, through analysis, shows that traffic from four major sources (AAA lines, H-H lines, Mobile lines and International) is responsible for the vast preponderance of traffic and traffic growth. Forecasts are provided (through 2020) for these classes of traffic and for the Internet as a whole. Based on the information from the traffic forecasts, the uncertainty from regulation (Net Neutrality) and the capital investment plans and forecasts, the Report will then provide equipment sales forecasts (units and dollars) for ROADMs, DWDM, Routers, and Switches (all carrier class) through 2020 for North America and for the World. Detailed descriptions of each type of equipment being forecast is also provided.
