Proximion experienced strong growth numbers on both the terrestrial and the submarine side. The growth was to a large extent attributed to the newly launched DCM-HDC targeted for ULH 40G and 100G coherent systems.

We are very pleased with the successful market acceptance of our coherent DCM portfolio but the numbers also reflect the strong demand for new coherent systems, as reported by many industrial analysts.
