Top 2 Players in the Market:

Huawei Technologies Company (China) is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) solutions. It is also one of the leading players in the optical communication and networking market. Its ICT solutions, products, and services are used in more than 170 countries and regions, serving over one-third of the world's population. Huawei provides a broad portfolio of optical networking products such as optical line terminals, optical networking units, optical network terminals, WDM transport systems, and multi-service transmission platforms. Huawei has adopted a mix of organic and inorganic growth strategies in this market. It proposed Optical Network 2.0 to initiate the age of cloud technology and has made significant technological innovations in optical transmission. In February 2016, Huawei showcased the world's first 320T centralized all-optical switching WDM prototype "OXC" at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016. Each OXC has a 320T switching capacity, which is 12 to 16 times the capacity of traditional OTN devices. In 2016, Huawei also provided optical transmission, routing, and broadband access solutions to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) and LINX in the UK to meet their need for high bandwidth, real-time data synchronization, and lossless failover.

Cisco (US) is engaged in the design, manufacturing, and sale of Internet protocol (IP)-based networking and other products related to the communications and information technology industry worldwide. It provides a wide range of optical networking products such as core, edge/access, and DWDM, which support providers, carriers, and enterprises. The product categories include DWDM, optical data center interconnects, packet optical transport systems, and SONET SDH. The company’s strategic priorities include accelerating its pace of innovation, increasing the value of the network, and delivering customized technology products. The company has also adopted some inorganic strategies, such as partnerships and acquisitions, to grow in this market. For example, in August 2017, Cisco completed the acquisition of Viptela (US), a privately held software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) company, to enhance its SD-WAN portfolio with increased flexibility and simplicity delivered through the cloud.
