According to a report by the Dell'Oro Group, global revenue for broadband access equipment increased 3% year-over-year (Y/Y), reaching $3.2 Billion. An 874% Y/Y increase in XGS-PON OLTs and continued growth of DOCSIS 3.1 CPE offset CCAP spending declines.
"The transition to 10 Gbps fiber technologies is now a global phenomenon," said Jeff Heynen, research director, Broadband Access and Home Networking. "The strength of 10 Gbps EPON and XGS-PON equipment in the quarter helped to offset continued weakness in cable CCAP spending, as major multiple-system operators' focus on deploying purchased capacity."
Among the findings:
- Total DSL port shipments increased 3% Y/Y, with VDSL Profile 35b ports increasing 29% and Gfast ports increasing 42%.
- Total cable access concentrator revenue decreased 40% Y/Y to $237 million, driven once again by a slowdown in CCAP license purchases in North America.
