Well, with a major consumer demand for larger quantities of data transmission, and CIEN and INFN expected to be the main suppliers in this market, I sincerely hope more tier 1's are"not out of the realm of possibilities", I hope that we see a number of such wins within a year or so.
VZ and T have been busy rolling out their LTE and 4G networks, that consumed a lot of resources. That has largely been done, now they can focus on their long haul network segments.
I believe we see one in the second half. Big overseas Carriers could follow within a year. I keep hoping India moves but India is a mess when it comes to roll outs, it is mired in politics and bureaucratic affairs. Some day it will be awarded, it is a very large project and I would think there is plenty of money for both CIEN and INFN.
