REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 6, 2016 – As reported in a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, 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.

“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.
