The Broadband Access market is changing dramatically as firms rapidly introduce new technologies to enable next-generation services.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How quickly will operators transition to 10G technologies, including XGS-PON and NG-PON2?
  • What will be the impact of proposed fiber technologies, including 25G and 50G PON?
  • How much longer will operators continue to rely on copper technologies, particularly VDSL Profile 35b, G.fast, and XG.fast?
  • When will cable operators begin their migration to distributed access architectures?
  • When cable operators do deploy DAA, will they be R-PHY, R-MACPHY, FMA, or a combination?
  • When will cable operators finally move to node plus zero?
  • What will the Fixed Wireless market look like, and how will it affect deployments in the Fixed Wireline market?
  • When and how will WiFi 6 be integrated into broadband CPE and consumer WiFi routers?
  • Which vendors will end up leading the nascent mesh router market?
  • What will be the impact on CPE suppliers of service providers offering increasing smart home and managed WiFi solutions?
  • Which equipment vendors lead the markets?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Broadband Access market.
