"It was a great quarter for the optical transport market," said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group.  "Demand for optical equipment took a positive turn in the quarter with higher revenues in North America and Asia Pacific pushing the global market revenue upwards by eight percent.  We attribute the growth in these two regions as follows.  For North America, growth was due to service providers increasing metro capacity to enable better broadband services to residential and enterprise customers, resulting in more DWDM system deployments.  The top two vendors benefiting from North America growth were Fujitsu and Ciena.  For Asia Pacific, the majority of the growth was due to Chinese service providers expanding their mobile LTE network resulting in a significant roll out of optical packet backhaul systems and DWDM long haul systems for inter-provincial capacity.  The top two vendors benefiting from China growth were ZTE and Huawei," Mr. Yu explained.
