Highlight of Business Operations:Although we had net profits of $71.6 million in fiscal 2011, we incurred net losses of $55.6 million and $61.8 million in fiscal years 2012 and 2010, respectively. As a portfolio company, comprised of many product lines, with diverse operating metrics and markets, our profit performance in a particular period is generally a function of both revenue and product mix factors. For example, our product portfolio has a broad gross margin range. Moreover, the profit contribution of each of our business segments currently varies materially. Additionally, for the last several years, we have undergone multiple manufacturing, facility, organizational and product line transitions. We expect some of these activities to continue for the foreseeable future. These activities are costly and impair our profitability objectives while ongoing. Specific factors that may undermine our financial objectives include, among others:
Net revenue from customers outside the Americas accounted for 49.6%, 51.4% and 51.5% of our total net revenue for fiscal 2012, 2011 and 2010, respectively. We expect that net revenue from customers outside North America will continue to account for a significant portion of our total net revenue. Lower sales levels that typically occur during the summer months in Europe and some other overseas markets may materially and adversely affect our business. In addition, the revenues we derive from many of our customers depend on international sales and consequently further expose us to the risks associated with such international sales.
Net revenue decreased by $48.2 million in our CommTest segment primarily due to uncertainty in the macro-economic environment which reduced carriers' spending in North America broadly across products in the instruments product portfolio. Carriers are spending cautiously as their end customers are delaying purchases, particularly in Europe and North America. This decrease was partially offset by growth within the instruments product portfolio and the customer experience management ("CEM") product portfolio in the Asia-Pacific region. Net revenue decreased by $69.2 million in our CCOP segment. The decrease was primarily driven by a decline in volume due to reduced demand in our optical communications product portfolios arising from uncertainty in the macro-economic environment, particularly in Europe, flooding in Thailand and price reductions in line with business expectations. This decline was partially offset by an increase in volume and demand in our Pluggables and Fiber Lasers product lines. Within the optical communications product portfolio, volume declined in our gesture recognition products compared to the successful launch of these products in fiscal 2011. Volume also declined in our Circuit Packs and ROADMs product lines. During the second fiscal quarter of 2012 flooding in Thailand temporarily suspended operations of Fabrinet, one of CCOP's
CommTest revenue increased $160.3 million largely due to the NSD acquisition in May 2010, the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, which contributed $112.3 million of the increase in revenue in fiscal 2011. The overall improvements in the macro-economic environment in fiscal 2011 helped drive an increase in revenues across a broad portfolio of our product lines, including Fiber, Video Broadband & Access and Metro/Transport. CCOP revenue increased $271.5 million primarily due to improvements in the economic environment of the optical communication industry in fiscal 2011 that led to an increase in demand and volume of our Pluggables, High Powered Lasers, Modulators, Tunables, ROADMS, Commercial Lasers and Circuit Pack product lines. Another factor in the fiscal 2011 increase in revenue was the introduction of new product platforms and product variants and the expansion of our market share in certain customer accounts. The full year impact of revenue from new products such as Tunable XFP and Gesture Recognition in the CCOP segment, which were introduced in the second and third quarter of fiscal 2010, respectively, was realized in fiscal 2011. The CCOP segment released new ROADM product variants in fiscal 2011, which also contributed to the increase in net revenue. AOT revenue increased $8.8 million due to higher demand for Gesture Recognition and Transaction Card products.
Net revenue was assigned to geographic regions based on the customers' shipment locations. Net revenue for Americas included net revenue from United States of $686.8 million, $695.9 million, and $532.8 million, for the fiscal years ended 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively, based on customers' shipment location. Net revenue from customers outside the Americas represented 49.6%, 51.4%, and 51.5% of net revenue for the fiscal years ended 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively. Consolidated revenues decreased year over year and in each geographical region in which we operate. While the proportion of consolidated revenues contributed by each geographical region did not change significantly from fiscal 2011 to fiscal 2012, the impact of the uncertainty in the macro-environment in Europe resulted in a small decrease in the proportion of revenue attributed to that region. We expect revenue from our customers outside of North America to continue to be an important part of our overall net revenue and an increasing focus for net revenue growth.
