Broadband Access Equipment Revenue Reached $3.4 Billion in 4Q 2018

  • Dell'Oro Group

REDWOOD CITY, CA — Global revenue for broadband access equipment revenue reached $3.4 billion, growing 8 percent Y/Y in 4Q 2018, according to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, a provider of market information about the telecommunications industry. Also reported was increased shipments of GPON OLTs and DOCSIS 3.1 CPE offset CCAP spending declines.

"FTTH deployments globally continue to show strength," said Jeff Heynen, research director, broadband access and home networking. "Both 2.5 Gbps GPON and 10 Gbps EPON equipment marked Y/Y increases, particularly in China. The gains on the telco side helped to offset surprising weakness in cable CCAP spending, as MSOs delay new capacity purchases while they determine how to move forward with distributed access architectures (DAA)," explained Heynen.

Following are additional highlights from the 4Q 2018 Broadband Access Quarterly Report:

  • Total DSL port shipments increased 16 percent Y/Y, with VDSL ports increasing 13 percent and Gfast ports increasing 232 percent.
  • Total PON ONT unit shipments increased 6 percent Y/Y, driven by strong demand for 2.5 Gbps GPON units in China and the Asia-Pacific region as a whole.
  • Total cable access concentrator revenue decreased 18 percent Y/Y to $380 million, driven by a slowdown in CCAP license purchases in North America.
  • 2.5 Gbps GPON, 10 Gbps EPON, and equipment all saw spending increases in the quarter.
