Service provider adoption of optical transport network (OTN) switching and transport equipment became a large growth engine for three of the largest optical vendors in 2013: Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena and Infinera, according to Infonetics Research.
If you want to know where there are new IPTV growth opportunities, look no further than Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. While these markets today are relatively small, a Pyramid Research report said that they will be the fastest growing.

Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena and Cisco may be the largest optical transport network switching and transport equipment and packet-optical transport systems vendors, but a new Infonetics report said they are being challenged by a host of pure-play P-OTS platform vendors.
CenturyLink has named Ciena as one of its latest 100G suppliers with plans to leverage the vendor's 6500 Packet-Optical Network Platform.
FiberLight, a competitive provider selling both wholesale and business services, on Tuesday selected Ciena's Packet Optical Transport Systems (P-OTS) for two large wireless backhaul service opportunities.
Dallas-- Cbeyond, a CLEC targeting mainly SMBs and medium-sized enterprises, chose BTI Systems' Packet Optical Transport System (P-OTS) and Ethernet platforms to power its new fiber-based cloud service initiative.
SingTel on Wednesday deployed Ciena's 5410 RSS platform and software to augment its global ConnectPlus IPLC network.

While the benefits of packet-optical transport systems (P-OTS) and software defined networks (SDN) have been chronicled well by the large incumbent service provider community, these platforms have...
