According to the recent Infonetics Optical Network Hardware Market Share report, the “fastest growing” ranking accredited to Infinera is based on a 23 percent hardware revenue growth in 2014. This ranking validates Infinera’s focus on expanded markets and highlights Infinera’s lead over competitors serving the datacenter market.
"Infinera was the big success story for 2014, outperforming the broad market with greater than 20 percent growth as a result of their focus on new customer verticals," said Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst, Carrier Transport Networking, Infonetics Research.
