Optical Components Sales Rev Up
Optical components and systems
companies have reported solid revenues for most of 2010 and fourth-quarter results
that set records, according to LightCounting LLC. Based in Eugene, Ore., the market
research company focuses on the optical communications market. LightCounting has
forecast solid growth for the market and has found that the cumulative bandwidth
of the network was not keeping up with the rise in Internet and data center traffic.
Its analysis indicates that a period of increased investment in networking infrastructure
will be necessary to catch up on several years of underinvestment and to balance
traffic growth and network expansion rates. A detailed analysis of the optical communications
market was released by the company in January.
