According to Infonetics Research, 2011 is going to be the peak for the fixed broadband aggregation equipment market, including PON, DSL and FTTH. By 2015, the research house expects the broadband aggregation market to decline to $5.0 billion, from an expected high of $7.9 billion this year.

Global spending on DSL, PON and FTTH equipment declined 3% sequentially in 3Q11 to $2.0 billion, led by a double-digit drop in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Asia Pacific is the only region to post an increase in broadband aggregation equipment spending, up 3% sequentially. After a 14% increase last quarter, global spending on DSL equipment declined 9% in 3Q11, reflecting a slowdown in some major projects plus traditional third quarter softness.
