Dell'Oro Forecast: VDSL and PON Broadband Equipment Revenues to Double in Next Five Years
According to Dell’ (News - Alert)Oro Group, revenue from build-outs of high-speed VDSL and PON networks will almost double between 2007 and 2012. Revenue from slower-speed ADSL equipment is also expected to fall by more than 40 percent during the same timeframe.
The Dell’Oro Group 5-year forecast report includes revenues from sales of both access concentrators and customer premises equipment.
Tam Dell’Oro, founder of Dell’Oro Group said in a statement that new revenue opportunities, primarily video services, is driving several telecom service providers in established regions to plan network upgrades to high-speed VDSL and PON technology.
Dell’Oro pointed out that manufacturers still have good opportunities to sell ADSL equipment, especially in emerging regions where subscriber growth is strongest. The research firm expect that ADSL revenue will fall each year because demand from emerging regions will not be enough to offset lower demand in established regions where broadband saturation is resulting in declining subscriber additions.
The complete Report provides a complete overview of the broadband access industry, with tables covering manufacturers’ revenue, average selling prices, and port/unit shipments for Cable, DSL, and PON equipment.
