Access Network Equipment Sales Robust in 4Q09

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- Revenue from high-bandwidth access network equipment grew 10 percent sequentially and 18 percent year over year during 4Q09, according to a new report from Dell'Oro Group. The report covers EPON and GPON optical line terminals, VDSL digital subscriber line access multiplexers and DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem termination systems.

"Upgrade projects driven by competition, increasing Internet traffic, government incentives and operators' desire to enable new revenue-generating services are all having a positive impact on equipment demand," says Tam Dell'Oro, president of Dell'Oro Group. "High-bandwidth VDSL, PON and Cable DOCSIS 3.0 access concentrator equipment are being deployed for these upgrades. As a result, each of these products had moderate to strong year-over-year revenue growth in the fourth quarter."

The report shows that Huawei was the leader for both EPON and GPON equipment sales, largely due to its status as lead vendor in the China market. Alcatel-Lucent held the top spot for VDSL and second spot for GPON, due to being a primary supplier for AT&T's U-verse and Verizon's FiOS services, respectively. For CMTS sales, Arris held the top spot over Cisco for the third consecutive quarter.
