Top 10 Optical Communication and Networking Equipment Solutions Companies in Europe - 2022

Anumber of factors are anticipated to accelerate the growth of the optical communication and networking equipment market during recent times, including the increasing adoption of cloud-based services and virtualization services worldwide, an increase in data traffic due to increased internet usage and a rise in the number of data centers. As per a study by Persistence Market Research, the global optical communication and networking equipment market is predicted to grow at a 7.3 percent CAGR from 2022 to 2032. In this regard, the rising expenditure on optical equipment by telecommunication carriers, given the increasing demand for broadband connections, is a prominent growth driver in Europe.

With the advent of IoT, AI, and Big Data, there is an increasing demand for smart devices and other connected applications. The interconnected technologies across telecommunication sectors play an important role in capturing, translating, and transferring data into meaningful information, which is crucial for the reinforcement of urban infrastructure. The backbone for this kind of infrastructural development is a high-speed fiber optics network, which can transfer enormous amounts of data, at high speed, from one end to another. The implementation of the 5G network and 6G networks requires high-bandwidth oriented fiber optical cables integrated with optical transceivers for secured and reliable data transfers. Therefore, the expansion of optical communication infrastructure across developing nations will drive the optical communication and networking equipment market in the future.

This edition of Enterprise Networking Magazine Europe features “Top 10 Optical Communication and Networking Equipment Solutions Providers in Europe - 2022, ” and brings the spotlight onto some of the key developments in the space and how companies are leveraging optical communication and networking equipment solutions to boost their growth.
