DOCSIS 3.0 Drives the North American Broadband CPE Market
Infonetics Research released vendor market share standings and market highlights from its first quarter (1Q12) Broadband CPE and Subscribers: PON, FTTH, Cable, and DSL report.
Jeff Heynen, directing analyst at Infonetics Research said “North America is a hotbed for wideband activity right now, with wideband CPE shipments up more than 50% from the same time last year, illustrating that the cable companies are making a consistent effort to move subscribers to DOCSIS 3.0 service tiers. This is something we haven’t seen until now.”
The global broadband customer premises equipment (CPE) market — including DSL, cable, and FTTH CPE — grew 4% in 1Q12 over 4Q11 to $1.76 billion.
