It is becoming increasingly clear that 2009 will see the most action in the metro and access space. Worldwide, operators are looking very hard at FMC and femtocells, and we believe that there will be some deployments even in the US by 2H09.

There are also a number of competitive initiatives from competitive access providers aimed at Ethernet services and enterprise customers, attempting to play off the corporate desire to gain headroom in access to leverage with later tactical purchases of services.

 Our research is showing that worldwide focus on infrastructure spending will be strongly in the access/metro direction in 2009 and even in 2010.
