According to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group, the source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, global revenue for broadband access equipment declined 2% Y/Y in 1Q 2019, reaching $2.9 Billion.

Increased shipments of XG-PON1, XGS-PON, NG-PON2 OLT ports, and DOCSIS 3.1, CPE offset CCAP spending declined for the second straight quarter.

“The 10 Gbps FTTH deployments continue to build momentum,” says Dell'Oro Group broadband access and home networking research director Jeff Heynen.

“The next-gen fibre increases nearly offset the weakness in cable CCAP spending, as cable operators push off new capacity purchases while they determine how to move forward with distributed access architectures.

Following are additional highlights from the 1Q 2019 Broadband Access Quarterly Report:

  • Total cable access concentrator revenue decreased 38% Y/Y to $275 M, driven by a strong slowdown in CCAP channel purchases in North America and EMEA.
  • Total DSL port shipments decreased 21% Y/Y, with ADSL ports down 71% and VDSL ports down 20%.
  • Total PON OLT port shipments increased 7% Y/Y, with XGS-PON ports up 337%.
  • Total SOHO WLAN units increased 13% Y/Y, driven by the driven by 19% Y/Y growth in broadband CPE with WLAN and 125% Y/Y growth in mesh router units.

The Dell'Oro Group Broadband Access 1Q 2019 Quarterly Report provides a complete overview of the Broadband Access market with tables covering manufacturers' revenue, average selling prices, and port/unit shipments for Cable, DSL, and PON equipment.

Covered equipment includes Converged Cable Access Platforms (CCAP) and Distributed Access Architectures (DAA), Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexers ([DSLAMs] by technology ADSL/ADSL2+, G.SHDSL, VDSL, G.FAST), and PON Optical Line Terminals (OLTs), as well as all Cable, DSL, and PON CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), and SOHO WLAN access points and wireless routers.
