GPON Sales Surge Past EPON in 1Q10

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- First-quarter GPON revenues from both optical line terminals (central-office equipment) and optical network terminals (customer-premises equipment) surpassed EPON revenues for the first time and hit a record level, growing almost 40 percent sequentially and 70 percent over the year-ago period, according to a new report by Dell'Oro Group.

"GPON growth in the first quarter was largely due to deployments in China," says Tam Dell'Oro, President of Dell'Oro Group. "China Unicom and China Telecom are deploying both EPON and GPON.  China Mobile, which was recently granted permission to deploy broadband and for which GPON is its preferred technology, also contributed to first-quarter GPON growth.  Other sizeable GPON shipments in the first quarter included those to Korea, Malaysia, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, the UAE and the U.S.," Dell'Oro adds.

The report shows that Huawei maintained its lead for GPON revenue largely due to being a primary supplier in the China market.  Next was Alcatel-Lucent, which narrowed the gap with Huawei due to growth of its ONT shipments to North America and EMEA.  Rounding out the top four was Motorola, followed closely by Ericsson, which doubled its share mainly due to growth in GPON shipments to China.
