"Although the SONET/SDH market has declined quarter to quarter to $1.1 billion, it continues to represent a larger portion of the optical transport market, as fewer deployments of DWDM have been realized," contends analyst Jimmy Yu.

Lucent Technologies captured the largest market share, followed by Siemens. Both companies gained ground from the prior quarter when they ranked third and fifth, respectively. Siemens was the only vendor with sequential growth in the SONET/SDH market.
