Growing Backhaul Demand Benefits Alcatel-Lucent and JDS Uniphase

The Paragon Report Provides Equity Research on Alcatel-Lucent & JDS Uniphase

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - Business in the backhaul space has been growing rapidly in recent years. Demand for mobile data has been a key driver for backhaul providers who are assisting carriers in solving their capacity crunch. According to an article from Wireless Week, the U.S. is a hot market for the fiber- and copper-based backhaul solutions because domestic operators tend to favor fixed-line backhaul over microwave solutions. The Paragon Report examines the outlook for companies in the Communications Equipment & Services industry and provides investment research on Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) and JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ: JDSU).
