Cost Savings Drives Optical Cross Connect Equipment Markets

As telecommunications carriers begin to build the Next Generation

infrastructure to accommodate increased network traffic and higher-bandwidth
applications, they are expected to turn to optical cross connect
(OXC) fiber optic equipment. By providing 100 times the bandwidth of
traditional equipment and facilitating easier operation and maintenance, OXC
systems will dramatically reduce capital and operational expenses, and
increase network manageability.

This study analyzes the markets for OXC fiber optic equipment used in both
core long haul and metro/regional networks, including optical-electrical-optical
(OEO) and optical-optical-optical (OOO) systems. It evaluates pricing
trends and provides market size forecasts for each technology. With such a
comprehensive guide to the industry, your company will be poised to
capitalize on a fast-growing field.
