According to the Dell'Oro Group, total broadband access equipment revenue was down 8% in 2019, with significant revenue declines in both telco digital subscriber line (DSL) and cable infrastructure.

One bright spot was the total global revenue for passive optical network (PON) optical line terminal (OLT) equipment, which reached $3 billion in 2019, up 16% from 2018, Dell'Oro says.

"Although 2019 was a challenging year for broadband access equipment vendors, with revenue dipping to levels not seen since 2012, there are positive signs that operators are committed to 10G upgrades to support premium broadband services," said Jeff Heynen, senior research director, Broadband Access and Home Networking. "There will be pockets of growth in 2020, but increased competition is needed to spur additional spending."

Among the findings:

  • Total cable access concentrator revenue decreased 30% Y/Y to $255 million, driven by a slowdown in converged cable access platform (CCAP) license purchases across all regions.
  • Total DOCSIS 3.1 customer premises equipment (CPE) units increased to 6 million, representing 67% of total cable CPE shipments.
  • Total XGS-PON OLT port shipments increased 222% Y/Y, as more operators continue their shift to 10 Gbps fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks.
