LightCounting is a 14 year old market research company focused on the in-depth study of high speed interconnects for the datacom, telecom, and consumer communications markets. Our research covers the whole supply chain from optical and semiconductor components, to modules and sub-systems and their application in telecom and datacom systems.

Our industry reputation was built by providing solid market data and objective analysis to help industry executives in making tactical and strategic business decisions and see past all the market hype, rumors, press, blogs and other distortions that so often complicate and confuse many decision making issues.

Our unique point of view comes from a focus on the actual ports deployed to construct global networks for datacom, telecom, FTTx and consumer markets.

Our analysis is rooted in our relationships with leading component, module and system suppliers that share confidential sales and shipment data with LightCounting. This enables LightCounting to portray an accurate view of the market. As a result, LightCounting is unique in that the company does not publish sensitive vendor market share data, but does publish extensive details and forecasts on technology and product segments. LightCounting sorts through the noise and "boils the ocean" down to the important actionable information. We confirm our analysis by communicating directly with suppliers and buyers at all levels of the "food chain" to create a 360 degree view of the products and end markets.

Our analyst team possesses a unique combination of industry, startup and market research experience and consists of industry veterans with expertise in optical components, optical systems, communication semiconductors, and network design, deployment and operation. Members of the team have raised millions of dollars in corporate and venture capital, and have taken companies from startup through IPOs and M&As. Our team has extensive executive-level operational experience at leading companies such as: Lucent, Intel, Broadcom, Fujitsu, TI, Tyco, Alcatel, Nexgen/AMD, ServerWorks/Broadcom, ServerEngines/Emulex, as well as previous industry and financial analyst experience with Gartner Group, Dataquest, IDC, and RHK and Prudential-Bache.

Publishing and analyzing information is time consuming. We encourage our clients to consider more than reports and build interactive, working relationships with the LightCounting analyst team.
