Huawei ranked first overall in combined market presence and market leadership in the recent Optical Network Hardware Vendor Scorecard released by IHS Markit, a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions.


Huawei received this assessment for its comprehensive performance on multiple benchmarks including reputation for innovation, market share momentum, and global market share.


The Scorecard used concrete data and metrics, including market share, financials and direct feedback from buyers on innovation, product reliability, service and support to evaluate 2016 market performance and future momentum of the top 10 optical network equipment vendors.


In the Scorecard, IHS Markit highlighted Huawei's strengths in technological innovation in many areas: Huawei continues to innovate in the OTN domain and recently introduced an OTN cluster capability that can scale to 100T and beyond; with continuing demand for increased capacity and a need to reduce power in large sites, Huawei is also putting a focus on all-optical cross-connections, essentially next-generation ROADM technology with an optical backplane for providing inter-degree connectivity and ultimately more scale; Huawei also recently introduced a new overarching vision and architecture, CloudOptiX, to address the increasing interest in and importance of cloud technologies into optical networks.
