Market Share: 1Q09 Optical networks, Global and Regional

Huawei blew the doors off what is typically a seasonally slow quarter by posting $790 million in optical networking (ON) revenues compared with traditional market leader Alcatel-Lucent's $639 million. The Chinese and Indian markets are on fire while North America remains ice-cold, which, coupled with the strength of the US dollar compared with the euro, has helped Huawei and ZTE and hurt Alcatel-Lucent, Nortel, Nokia Siemens, Cisco, and others. Spending of $3.5 billion for the quarter is largely in line with our $15.4 billion forecast for the year.
