REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 4, 2015 –In a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center information technology (IT) industries, the worldwide Broadband Access market, which includes PON, DSL, and Cable technologies, reached $3 billion in the first quarter of 2015.

“The EMEA region performed exceptionally well this quarter both in PON and on the copper side of the market in VDSL,” said Alam Tamboli, Senior Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “EMEA now accounts for approximately two thirds of worldwide VDSL port shipments, its highest proportion since we began tracking this market.  We expect this strong performance to continue over the foreseeable future due to operators’ need to increase bandwidth to remain competitive and handle increasing Internet traffic.  Existing infrastructure and relatively poor macroeconomic conditions further suggest that operators in EMEA, particularly Europe, will forego PON deployments in favor of VDSL due to the relatively higher cost to deploy,” Tamboli commented.

The Passive Optical Network (PON) market continued to drive overall broadband access market demand, with revenues rising to record levels for a second consecutive quarter.
