Infonetics Research: GPON and VDSL Bright Spots in Struggling Broadband Aggregation Market
CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Market research firm Infonetics
Research released vendor market share and preliminary analysis from
its 4th quarter 2012 (4Q12) PON,
FTTH, and DSL Aggregation Equipment and Subscribers report.
(Full report published Mar. 4.)
"2012 was a challenging year for fixed broadband equipment, with DSL
taking the biggest hit as China continues its transition to FTTH,"
Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics
Research. "But despite the difficult road for DSL, VDSL
remains a real bright spot, expanding among operators in Western Europe,
North America and Latin America. Vectoring solutions and a long-term
path to G.Fast are driving sustained interest in VDSL2."
adds: "Meanwhile, GPON equipment had an outstanding year, with China
again contributing the most revenue and EMEA
and Latin America providing pockets of strength."
