Technology market research firm Infonetics Research, now part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), today reported that worldwide spending on broadband aggregation equipment rose 9 percent in 2014, to $8.2 billion, driven by robust sales of Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) equipment, particularly in China.
Infonetics’ early edition PON, FTTH, and DSL Aggregation Equipment report contains vendor market share and preliminary analysis for the broadband aggregation equipment market for the fourth quarter of 2014 (4Q14) and the full-year 2014.
“The strength in the broadband aggregation market is due to another record year for GPON equipment, as operators around the world seek a flexible, interoperable technology for offering higher-bandwidth speeds to their customers. China leads in GPON spending, accounting for half of all GPON sales in 2014, while Latin America notched the largest increase in GPON spending, up 258 percent. Fierce competition in Brazil combined with key FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) projects in Mexico and Colombia helped expand GPON’s reach,” said Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research, now part of IHS.
