Campbell, CALIFORNIA (June 8, 2015)—The global broadband aggregation equipment market, including DSL, PON and Ethernet FTTH, totaled $2.1 billion in the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15), a 5 percent sequential falloff, but a 14 percent gain year-over-year driven by GPON and VDSL deployments, according to a new report from IHS (NYSE: IHS).
“Broadband aggregation equipment spending went above $2 billion in each of the last three quarters, so there was bound to be some slowdown to start the year,” said Jeff Heynen, research director for broadband access at IHS.
“Though we look for spending to drop to around $7.8 billion for the full-year 2015, that total is well above historical years and shows operators’ continued commitment to providing premium fixed broadband services around the world,” Heynen said.
