It is a quagmire, isn't it?

The revenue from capacity (Ethernet, IP, DWDM, SDH) is falling every
year, to a point where it stops becoming a primary revenue source for
any telecoms provider. However, the cost of equipment is not following
suit, be it on the IP, Transport or Mobile side, terrestrial, marine or
wireless.

Work that is going on in the open space around all of this for hardware
and software needs to pick its pace up, otherwise this disconnect
between the loss of revenue and the cost of capex will remain.
