After a long gloomy couple of fiber optic years, the folks at Ciena and Advanced Fiber Communications are cracking open the bottles of bubbly.
* Ciena got a big order for its edge multiservice access platform from SingTel, the Singaporean telecom company.
* AFC is the big beneficiary of the Verizon FTTH contract.
* Sonus Networks on the other hand is happy with its #1 spot in the Carrier VoIP market. According to Synergy Research & In-Stat, Sonus rules the roost in most major categories.
