Shipments of DSL ports, CMTSs rise in Q2
In the second quarter, shipments of global DSL ports crossed the 25-million mark, an increase of 16 percent year-on-year and 10 percent sequentially, and CMTS shipments rose 10 percent year-on-year and 3 percent sequentially, according to Ovum RHK.
“The DSL market grew strongly in 2Q07 on the back of a spurt in Asia-Pacific (shipments crossed the 10-million mark for the first time), particularly in the Chinese market,” said Kamalini Ganguly, an analyst of broadband network strategies at Ovum. “In addition, there was continued demand from operators deploying IPTV and next-generation networks in North America and EMEA. Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei remained number one and two in the DSL market, with both vendors recording their highest-ever shipments.”
Alcatel-Lucent shipped 9.6 million DSL ports in the quarter, a 36 percent market share on a rolling four-quarter basis, followed by Huawei with 19 percent, ZTE with 10 percent, Ericsson with 8 percent, Nokia Siemens Networks with 7 percent, and Fujitsu and UTStarcom with 4 percent each.
In the CMTS market, Cisco remained the dominant vendor with a 50 percent market share on a rolling four-quarter basis, followed by Arris with 30 percent, Motorola with 15 percent and BigBand with 3 percent.
