Siemens Claims Leading Share of Optical Long-Haul DWDM Market

Siemens Communications claimed a 21% share of the 2005 global market of optical long-haul DWDM transport solutions, with reconfigurable add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) capabilities, according to figures from Infonetics Research cited by the company.

Siemens said it benefited from strong North America sales of its SURPASS hiT 7500 long-haul DWDM solution. Siemens' optical market momentum was especially strong in the second half of 2005, with a 28 percent fourth-quarter global market share that was more than double that of the next ranking DWDM vendor.
