Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is an innovative technology that focuses on multiplexing optical signals on a single fiber based on color or wavelength of light used in optical fiber communication. WDM equipment typically facilitates bidirectional communication over a single strand of fiber optic, thus allowing network operators to achieve multiplication effect in the capacity of available fiber and enhancing the overall capacity
Long-haul networks, proliferation of cloud computing, deployment of WDM equipment in MANs, and surge in investments on advanced networking infrastructure drive the WDM equipment market. However, wavelength leasing (an alternative to leasing of physical links or bit rate-limited tunnels), disaster recovery, and optical VPNs restrain the market growth. Moreover, ongoing efforts of telecom companies to upgrade their network infrastructure with performance-enhancing network technologies and rise in investment on long-haul, metropolitan area, and access network globally present numerous opportunities for market expansion.
The global WDM equipment market is segmented on the basis of type, technology, and region. Type covered in this study includes conventional/coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM) and dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM). Based on technology, the market is divided into optical network system design, optical device technology, and system key technology. Furthermore, the optical network system design includes SNR design, pre-chirping and dispersion compensation, and Bit Error Rate (BER); optical device technology includes optical transmitter, WDM optical fiber amplifier, MUX/DMUX, and optical attenuator; and system key technology includes optical supervisory channel and overhead interface. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
The global WDM equipment market is dominated by key players such as ADTRAN, ADVA Optical Networking, Alcatel-Lucent, Aliathon Technology, Ciena Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., Ericsson AB, Finisar Corporation, NEC India Pvt. Ltd., and ZTE Corporation.
