PON, Cable Equipment Sales Push Up Broadband Access Market

REDWOOD CITY, CA — PON and cable equipment sales pushed the broadband access market up 13 percent year-over-year in 1Q16. The availability of DOCSIS 3.1 compatible platforms spurred strong investment in cable access concentrators, as reported in a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, a provider of market information about the telecommunications, networks and data center IT industries.

“Both PON and cable revenue grew double digits year-over-year. For PON, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE were, in rank order, the top vendors. Nokia was able to secure the second-rank over the past two quarters with strength in North America. Meanwhile, all three vendors continued to do well in China,” said Alam Tamboli, senior analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “After a small decline in 2015, the cable market rebounded in the first quarter of 2016. Cable access concentrators drove the market with revenues growing almost 50 percent year-over-year. Both Arris and Cisco, the two largest cable access concentrator vendors, saw significant increases in demand for their flagship platforms. Both of these platforms have been available for over a year now and are compatible with DOCSIS 3.1, the next generation of technology that will enable cable operators to easily deploy gigabit services,” Tamboli added.
