2022 marked record year for broadband equipment spending: Dell'Oro

March 16, 2023
With total segment revenue up 17% Y/Y in 2022, total PON equipment revenue leapt 25% in the same period, marking the fifth straight year of annual revenue growth, reports Dell’Oro Group.

According to a recently published report by technology market information analyst Dell’Oro Group, total global revenue for the broadband access equipment market increased to $19 billion in 2022, up 17 percent year-over-year (Y/Y).

Meanwhile, the analyst found that spending on PON equipment continued to fuel the overall market, with revenue for PON OLTs and ONTs reaching $11.7 billion for the year.

Dell Oro's 4Q 2022 Broadband Access and Home Networking quarterly report also found that total XGS-PON OLT port shipments exceeded 2 million for the year, reaching a total of 2.3 million worldwide.

For its part, total cable access concentrator revenue was up 1 percent Y/Y at $1 billion, noted the report's summary.

However, the analyst found that Remote PHY devices, Remote OLTs, and Virtual CMTS platforms all recorded significant revenue gains for the year, as cable operators continue to expand their DAA and fiber initiatives.

Jeff Heynen, VP with Dell’Oro Group, remarked:

“The focus on upgrading and expanding broadband access networks was a clear focus for operators around the world in 2022. We expect broadband to remain a critical area of investment in 2023, as operators expand their footprint and increase the speeds and services they offer subscribers."

The Dell’Oro Group Broadband Access and Home Networking Quarterly Report provides a complete overview of the broadband access market with tables covering manufacturers’ revenue, average selling prices, and port/unit shipments for cable, DSL, and PON equipment.

Covered equipment per the report includes categories for Converged Cable Access Platforms (CCAP) and Distributed Access Architectures (DAA); Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexers ([DSLAMs] by technology VDSL, VDSL Profile 35b, and G.FAST); PON Optical Line Terminals (OLTs), Cable, DSL, and PON CPE (Customer Premises Equipment); and Residential WLAN Equipment, including Mesh Routers.
