Infonetics: Broadband Aggregation Equipment Passes $2 Billion in Q2 as Operators ‘Binge on Broadband’

August 20, 2014

CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and preliminary analysis from its 2nd quarter 2014 (2Q14) PON, FTTH, and DSL Aggregation Equipment and Subscribers report. (Full report published by Aug. 29.)

BROADBAND ANALYST NOTE

“Operators around the world are binging on broadband,” says Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. “Driven by GPON and vectoring, the broadband aggregation market passed the $2 billion mark in the second quarter of 2014, growing by double digits both sequentially and from the year-ago quarter.”

Heynen adds: “‘Gigabit’ has become the mantra of the North American market, resulting in an acceleration of FTTH network investments. Meanwhile in Europe, vectoring VDSL2 deployments continue to ramp quickly.”

BROADBAND MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • In 2Q14, worldwide broadband aggregation equipment revenue (DSL, PON, and Ethernet FTTH) reached $2.1 billion, growing 17% quarter-over-quarter and 19% year-over-year
  • Global spending on all broadband product segments rose in 2Q14 from 1Q14: Ethernet FTTH soared 45%, DSL aggregation climbed 21%, and PON increased 15%
  • GPON equipment sales are up 19% sequentially in 2Q14, and up 44% from the same period a year ago, sparked by China
  • VDSL ports grew to 6.6 million in 2Q14, as vectoring endeavors in EMEA continued to expand and grow in significance
  • North America rebounded from a typically slow Q1, and broadband spending is expected to increase later this year when Connect America Fund (CAF) projects get underway
  • Huawei saw a jump in broadband aggregation gear revenue in 2Q14 in Asia Pacific, driven largely by projects in Southeast Asia
