EUGENE, OR--(Marketwire - December 10, 2007) - The optical transceiver market is vibrant and clearly poised for double-digit growth in spite of the slow start in the first half of 2007, according to an upcoming research report from LightCounting, the premier transceiver research company. In the LightCounting Transceiver Sales Report, scheduled to be released December 17, LightCounting validates the assumption that the high data rate interfaces including OC-192, OC-768 and 10GigE modules will be the fastest growing product segments. LightCounting also predicts that sales of WDM Modules and SONET/SDH transceivers, which posted positive growth in Q307, will drive the market. The report also includes the first shipment numbers of very compact SFP+ 8Gbps Fibre Channel and 10 GigE transceivers reported by suppliers in 2007.
