Increasing Bandwidth Requirements Drives Record Fourth Quarter Access Revenue, According to Dell'Oro Group
Cisco tops in CMTS, Huawei and Alcatel-Lucent tops in GPON and VDSL
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, increasing subscriber bandwidth requirements drove Cable operators to add DOCSIS 3.0 capacity and telecom service providers to accelerate new VDSL and PON network build-outs in the fourth quarter. The result was fourth quarter revenue for Access equipment (Cable + DSL + PON) including infrastructure equipment and CPE surging 10% sequentially and 9% over the year ago period.
"Within Access, PON growth was strongest and was not only driven by the massive deployments in China but also by increasing fiber deployments in other regions," said Steve Nozik, Principal Analyst of Access research at Dell'Oro Group. "Next strongest was Cable as operators added DOCSIS 3.0 capacity to keep up with rapidly increasing video internet traffic. For DSL, despite the overall market trending lower, the higher-speed VDSL segment is growing with port shipments reaching a record level," Nozik added.
The report shows that in the fourth quarter, Cisco was the lead CMTS vendor followed by Arris. For GPON, Huawei was the leader followed by Alcatel-Lucent. For VDSL, Alcatel Lucent holds the top spot.
