Fixed LTE and DOCSIS 3.0 Propel Broadband CPE Market

  • Infonetics Research
CAMPBELL, CA - The overall broadband CPE market is strong, as operators continue to transition to higher-speed, wider-band technologies to support steadily growing numbers of subscribers with ever-growing appetites for bandwidth, according to new research from market research firm Infonetics. In particular, in the cable space, DOCSIS 3.0 shipments now clearly outweigh DOCSIS 2.0.

Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2nd quarter 2013 (2Q13) "Broadband CPE and Subscribers: PON, FTTH, Cable, and DSL Market Share, Size and Forecasts Report," which tracks DSL, cable, and fiber to the home (FTTH) customer premises equipment (CPE), fixed LTE gateways, residential gateways, and broadband subscribers.

In regard to the report Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research, said, "There were a surprising number of fixed LTE gateways shipped in the Middle East, Africa, the Philippines, and other areas of Southeast Asia in the second quarter. This reflects the growing use of fixed LTE by operators in some markets to complement their existing fixed broadband services and extend their broadband footprint in rural markets and where physical infrastructure isn't available."
