San Mateo, CA, March 21, 2002 - According to a new ElectroniCast study, the global commercial consumption of Dynamic Gain Equalizers (DGE), standalone plus integrated components, in 2001 was $12 million, and is forecasted to reach $451 million by 2006, with an average annual growth rate of 107 percent per year

San Mateo, CA, March 21, 2002 - According to a new ElectroniCast study, the global commercial consumption of Dynamic Gain Equalizers (DGE), standalone plus integrated components, in 2001 was $12 million, and is forecasted to reach $451 million by 2006, with an average annual growth rate of 107 percent per year. The "standalone" module share of this in 2001 was 87 percent, but will drop (relatively) to 63 percent by 2006.

"DGEs are used in WDM fiber networks," ElectroniCast Chairman and Founder Jeff D. Montgomery said. "They are sold as a standard product, and also are a functional unit built into higher level 'supercomponents' such as Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (OADMs) and Optical Fiber Amplifiers (OFAs). There are numerous DGE vendors. At most of these vendors, the DGE as a standalone component in 2001 was developmental; not yet qualified for commercial consumption in revenue traffic networks," Montgomery said.

The North American consumption of standalone DGEs directly into fibers of communication networks, plus DGE component consumption integrated into higher-level component assemblies, in 2001 was 52 percent of global consumption at $6 million. This share will decline over the next five years to 46 percent, while North American value rises to $207 million.

The Dynamic Gain Equalizer & Components Forecast is available for US $1,995.
