Dell'Oro: Service Providers Spend Over $36 Billion on Wireline Gear in 2007

Telecom service providers worldwide purchased more than $36 billion of equipment to enhance their wireline networks in 2007, up more than 10 percent over 2006 levels, according to Dell'Oro Group. The largest increases in capex spend was on optical transport and routers, followed distantly by IP voice equipment (such as media gateways and softswitches), and carrier Ethernet switches. Spending on broadband access and multiservice switching declined.

Dell'Oro said Cisco captured the bulk of spend on routers while Alcatel-Lucent captured spend on optical transport. Nokia Siemens and Nortel captured the majority of spend on IP voice equipment.
