The global OTN transport and switching equipment market is expected to be driven by growing volumes of unpredictable multimedia traffic such as videos and photos. Increasing 40G and 100G service rollouts by global service providers is anticipated to contribute to market growth over the forecast period. Further, inability of Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) technology to cope with high speed 40G and 100G technologies is anticipated to drive market growth. Further, increasing bandwidth requirement may fuel market demand. Growing demand for addressing dramatic shifts in traffic types coupled with increasing requirements to reduce CAPEX/OPEX in carrier networks are projected to fuel market growth over the next few years. Further, increasing number of carriers having non-homogenous networks operating wireless, broadband, enterprise network connectivity, and internet transit networks simultaneously may utilize OTN networks over the forecast period. This may lead to increased demand for OTN transport and switching equipment.

Carriers with homogeneous networks may not find utility for OTN network. Additionally, increasing cost of deploying OTN may restrain market growth. Optical Transport Network (OTN) comprise of Optical Network Elements (ONE) interconnected using high-speed optical fiber links to provide transport, switching, multiplexing, management, supervision functionality OTN delivers a transparent framework to efficiently carry diverse network traffics. Additionally, OTN can be used with Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), Wavelength Switched Optical Networks (WSON) and Time-division multiplexing (TDM) devices. The G.709 OTN defines a frame format, which wraps data packets in format similar to SONET frame.
