Light Reading sees higher carrier capex among the optical networking trends to look out for in 2013: the site points to comments from Finisar's (FNSR) CEO about European networks running at 65% of capacity (up from a prior 40%), as well as remarks from MKM noting "positive spending announcements" from AT&T, Sprint, Deutsche Telekom, and others. It also sees demand for 100G optical transmission systems taking off. Yesterday, Piper predicted component vendors would get a 2H13 lift from capex increases.
