Broadband Access Market Reaches Record Level in 2015, Driven by PON

  • DELL’ORO GROUP
REDWOOD CITY, CA – The worldwide broadband access market, which includes cable, DSL and PON technologies, reached a record level and exceeded $12 million in 2015, driven by PON, according to findings in a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, a provider of market information about the telecommunications, networks and data center IT industries. Looking at 2016, cable modem is predicted to make a comeback.

“PON revenue grew by 21 percent to over $6 billion in 2015. Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel-Lucent all benefited from strong deployments into China, especially in customer premises equipment,” said Alam Tamboli, senior analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “In North America, Alcatel-Lucent, Calix and ADTRAN all realized strength as gigabit services are deployed by both large and small service providers. Demand for both DSL and cable technologies fell in 2015, however, upcoming technologies, like G.fast, 35b, and DOCSIS 3.1 should help to turn this trend around in 2016. This will be especially important as service providers, whose current infrastructure is based around DOCSIS or DSL technologies, will look to more effectively and efficiently compete with competitors who utilize fiber. In fact, we forecast the total broadband access market to grow with positive contributions from all three technologies in 2016,” Tamboli added.
