TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Wavelength Select Switch Market 2011-2015


TechNavio today launched its report Global Wavelength Select Switch Market 2011-2015 based on an in-depth analysis covering the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers' understanding of the significant trends impacting this market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''In order to decrease the manufacturing cost of network equipment and its subsequent rollout, most optical network providers, internet service providers (ISPs), and equipment manufacturers are demanding tighter channel spacing wavelength select switches. Hence, several wavelength select switch manufacturers are shifting from 100 GHz to 50 GHz channel spacing wavelength select switches. As a result, the fiber capacity is being doubled and these networks are becoming more compatible with the cutting-edge wavelength division multiplexing solution. Thus, the increasing use of 50 GHz wavelength select switches is an emerging trend in the Global Wavelength Select Switch market.''

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing deployment of 3G and long-term evolution (LTE) networks. Most of the telecom network providers are using optical fiber cables for the 3G or LTE network backhaul. These optical network providers are procuring wavelength select switches to enhance the efficiencies of multiplexing and de-multiplexing of the fiber optics networks.

Further, the report reveals that the global economic slowdown has had an adverse impact on the Global Wavelength Select Switch market.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors. For further information on this report, please visit
