REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – March 2, 2016 – In a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the worldwide Broadband Access market, which includes Cable, DSL, and PON technologies, reached a record level and exceeded $12 B in 2015, driven by PON. Looking at 2016, Cable Modem is predicted to make a comeback.

“PON revenue grew by 21 percent to over $6 B in 2015. Huawei, ZTE, and Alcatel-Lucent all benefitted from strong deployments into China, especially in customer premises equipment,” said Alam Tamboli, Senior Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “In North America, Alcatel-Lucent, Calix, and ADTRAN all realized strength as gigabit services are deployed by both large and small Service Providers. Demand for both DSL and Cable technologies fell in 2015, however, upcoming technologies, like, 35b, and DOCSIS 3.1, should help to turn this trend around in 2016.  This will be especially important as Service Providers, whose current infrastructure is based around DOCSIS or DSL technologies, will look to more effectively and efficiently compete with competitors who utilize fiber. In fact, we forecast the total Broadband Access market to grow with positive contributions from all three technologies in 2016” Tamboli added.
