Infonetics Research: Carrier Ethernet equipment market projected to reach $34 billion in 2013

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2009) - Market research firm Infonetics Research released the second edition of its biannual Carrier Ethernet Equipment market size, market share, and forecast report.

ANALYST NOTE

"Carrier Ethernet technology is integral to service provider IP next gen network projects aimed at transforming from TDM- to packet-based networks to handle ever-growing consumer, business, mobile backhaul, and video traffic. Service provider investment in carrier Ethernet continues to defy the economic downturn and outpace overall telecom capital expenditure investments. Over the 5 years from 2009 to 2013, we expect service providers worldwide to spend a cumulative $146 billion on carrier Ethernet equipment," projects Michael Howard, Infonetics Research's principal analyst for carrier and data center networks.

CARRIER ETHERNET EQUIPMENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

--  Carrier Ethernet equipment manufacturer revenue is projected to grow
    to $34 billion by 2013
--  IP NGN transformation projects depend heavily on IP, MPLS, and
    Ethernet, and gradually employ the use of Ethernet transport instead of
    SONET/SDH
--  The largest investments are in IP core and edge routers, carrier
    Ethernet switches, and optical gear
--  Ethernet microwave is the fastest growing carrier Ethernet technology
    based on its use for mobile backhaul
--  Cisco leads in worldwide revenue market share for carrier Ethernet
    switches, IP core routers (Ethernet), and IP edge routers (Ethernet) in
    2008
--  Juniper is a strong second in the core routers segment
