PON Rallies Broadband Aggregation Market in Q2

  • Infonetics Research
CAMPBELL, CA - Due to increases in PON equipment spending across the globe - particularly Gigabit PON (GPON) — the broadband aggregation equipment market bounced back in the second quarter, according to Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research, which released new vendor market share and analysis from its second quarter 2013 (2Q13) "PON, FTTH, and DSL Aggregation Equipment and Subscribers" report.

“In the EMEA region, PON equipment revenue jumped 71 percent over the previous quarter, aided largely by projects in Russia that boosted the revenue of Huawei, ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent and ECI, the primary suppliers of GPON equipment to Russian operators.” Heynen added. “In the EMEA region, PON equipment revenue jumped 71 percent over the previous quarter, aided largely by projects in Russia that boosted the revenue of Huawei, ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent and ECI, the primary suppliers of GPON equipment to Russian operators.”

2Q13 Broadband Aggregation Market Highlights

  • The global broadband aggregation market (PON, FTTH, and DSL equipment) grew 6 percent sequentially in 2Q13, to $1.6 billion

  • In the critical Chinese market, spending on GPON equipment was up again in 2Q13, as China Unicom and China Telecom continue to roll out GPON-based FTTH and now FTTB

  • Total revenue for broadband aggregation gear in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) rebounded nicely in 2Q13, though DSL equipment revenue slumped to its lowest level ever

  • North America also bounced back from a lackluster 1st quarter, but Ethernet PON spending dipped 8% after a 240 percent gain in 1Q13; even so, shipments of EPON gear to cable operators for business services based on DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON) continue unabated

  • Broadband aggregation market share leaders Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, and ZTE held onto the top three spots in 2Q13, while ECI Telecom and Adtran showed strong growth

  • Operators in Western Europe are forgoing large-scale FTTH rollouts in favor of VDSL2: Belgacom, KPN, British Telecom, France Telecom, and Deutsche Telekom have been joined by Turk Telecom, Telekom Austria, and others deploying VDSL2
