Despite the global telecom meltdown, interest in wavelength services continues. With Capex budgets dwindling, companies are looking for alternative ways of doing business. In particular, the complexity, high price and long provisioning times associated with private lines and dark fiber leases have EtherLECs and other service providers looking for a less expensive alternative to traditional methods of transport. Enter Wavelength Services.

In Pioneer Consulting’s report, Metro and Long-Haul Wavelength Services: An Assessment of the Business Cycle Impacts, Opportunities and Global Demand, Pioneer revisits its earlier study of wavelength services, providing an updated view of the marketplace and forecasts that reflect the current dynamics of the telecom sector. The report updates all forecasts of Pioneer’s previous report, “Global Wavelength Services: Optical Signaling Development, Business Case Justification and New Revenue Opportunities” and thus is essential for an up-to-date understanding of the market opportunity offered by wavelength services in the midst of the business cycle.

In this updated report, Pioneer thoroughly examines the business READ MORE >
