GPON Will Lead Growth in Access Market Through 2016

REDWOOD CITY, CA – Next-generation equipment, including GPON OLTs, DOCSIS 3.0 CMTS and VDSL devices, will lead growth in the access market through 2016, offsetting declining revenue for slower-speed ADSL equipment, says a new report by telecom research firm Dell'Oro Group. GPON, a fiber-to-the-home technology, will have the highest growth rate, followed by cable technology DOCSIS 3.0 and telephone technology VDSL, the report says.

“Our forecast for GPON growth is driven by deployments in China as well as increasing projects in other global regions," says Steve Nozik, principal analyst of access research at Dell’Oro Group. “For CMTS, growth will be driven by rapidly increasing Internet traffic, competition with telecom service providers, and an increasing focus on the small and medium-sized business market among cable operators as well as a migration to IP video service. We expect DOCSIS to continue as the primary cable broadband technology for at least the next five years due to additional channel bonding being used to meet increasing bandwidth requirements. VDSL’s higher bandwidth capabilities, in association with emerging vectoring technology aimed at extending the life of copper infrastructure by eliminating cross-talk, will drive VDSL growth over the next five years.“ adds Nozik.
