Tata Communications adds 40-Gbps to TGN-Atlantic undersea cable network
Tata Communications has inaugurated 40-Gbps services across its TGN-Atlantic undersea cable system from New York to London. The services are the result of a recent capacity upgrade using coherent communications technology from Ciena (NASDAQ: CIEN).The new services use the coherent 40G/100G capabilities of the Ciena 6500 Packet-Optical Platform. Ciena expects this upgrade will be the first in a series that will see Tata Communications’ increase capacity across its global fiber-optic network. Tata currently operates more than 200,000 km of terrestrial network fiber and more than 500,000 km of submarine cable. In fact, Tata plans to add 40-Gbps to its link to Ashburn, VA, and the rest of Europe, Ciena reveals.Alan Mauldin, research director at market research and analysis firm TeleGeography commented, "The compounding effect of demand growth requires carriers to make considerable investments to expand network capacity. Tata Communications' implementation of 40G technology on the company's trans-Atlantic system will play a key role in meeting customers' capacity requirements in a cost-effective manner.”John Hayduk, president, product management and service development at Tata Communications, added, “The deployment of 40G technology on our TGN-Atlantic cable system is a hugely significant step for us in cementing our leadership in global network infrastructure. It will ensure our network is future proof and will bring maximum long-haul transmission bandwidth, lower latencies, higher uptimes, and seamless scalability to carriers and enterprises, while ensuring a low cost of ownership for our customers.”
Infonetics: Huawei leads weak third quarter 2011 for optical network equipment
Huawei and Cisco were the big winners in optical network equipment sales during the third quarter of 2011 – if anyone could be considered as having a successful quarter given a slowdown in capital expenditures (capex). Market research firm Infonetics Research made this assessment when it released its third quarter 2011 Optical Network Hardware vendor market share report.The worldwide optical network equipment market, including WDM and SDH/SONET equipment, sank 4% sequentially in 3Q11, from $3.5 billion to $3.4 billion. This contrasts to a 12% uptick in the previous quarter."Cisco posted a big sequential gain in optical equipment revenue (+46%), as did the vendors who sell into Japan, and WDM equipment sales were up in North America,” offered Andrew Schmitt, directing analyst for optical for Infonetics Research. “But outside of this, Q3 was not a strong quarter for the optical network hardware market.“A telltale sign of a capex slowdown is when purchases of advanced equipment (WDM) decline and legacy equipment (SDH) increase -- this happened in the EMEA region (namely Europe), but not in North America. This is a key trend to watch for in 4Q11; if continued in EMEA this would be a strong negative leading indicator," Schmitt warned.As a sign of the unhealthy environment, Huawei’s sales for the quarter declined sequentially – but the company gained market share. Huawei’s performance did represent an increase of 23% year on year.The rolling 12-month spending averages reflected the fact that, despite the slow sales in 3Q11, the overall market is still doing better than last year. Year-over year, from 3Q10 to 3Q11, the overall optical network equipment market is up 5%.In addition to SONET/SDH, WDM sales have seen an 18% year-over-year increase, while ROADMs sales set a new high in the quarter, up 4% sequentially.North America posted modest quarter-over-quarter gains, led by Cisco, Nokia Siemens Networks, and ADVA Optical Networking. Performance in Asia remains comparatively weak, with Japan doing well but China not.
Ciena tops Infonetics Research carrier survey
Market research firm Infonetics Research says that carriers consider Ciena Corp. (NASDAQ:CIEN) the top vendor of 40- and 100-Gbps transmission systems, next-generation packet-optical transport systems, and optical transmission and switching systems in general. The market research firm reached this conclusion based on the results of a survey of carriers worldwide.The results of the survey are contained in the recently released November 2011 Optical Equipment Features and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey.Ciena has reason to be pleased, but carriers also hold other optical platform vendors in high regard. For example, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Infinera, and Nokia Siemens Networks also scored well with survey respondents, Infonetics says.Of course, prestige isn’t enough to please shareholders. The survey reports Infinera and Nokia Siemens Networks were the only vendors being evaluated for future contract awards by more customers than those on their current customer list. Meanwhile, in a separate announcement, Infonetics revealed that Huawei stretched its optical networking equipment market share lead in the third quarter of 2011 (see “Infonetics: Huawei leads weak third quarter 2011 for optical network equipment”).The survey, in addition to measuring vendor popularity, also attempts to unearth data on the future needs of respondents in areas such as 40G/100G and next-generation packet-optical transport systems. explains "One of the surprising results of this survey is that control plane features are a critical area of differentiation, named by more service providers than cost as one of the three most important features that sets vendors apart from others when evaluating an optical supplier," says Andrew Schmitt, directing analyst for optical at Infonetics Research.Meanwhile, Infonetics reports that factors such as service and support and vendor stability are not as influential as some optical equipment vendors expected.To conduct the survey, Infonetics says it interviewed an international collection of 10G/40G/100G optical transmission and switching equipment purchase decision makers at 18 incumbent carriers, competitive operators, and mobile operators in September and October 2011. The respondents collectively represent 22% of the world's public carrier revenue and 20% of the world's carrier capex, Infonetics asserts.
