According to Infonetics Research, the worldwide broadband aggregation equipment market reached $2.1 billion in the second quarter of 2014, growing by double digits. The research house says GPON and vectoring technologies drove much of the growth. FTTH factored strongly in the North American market, while VDSL2 was big in Europe.

Research highlights include:

  • In 2Q14, worldwide broadband aggregation equipment revenue (DSL, PON, and Ethernet FTTH) reached $2.1 billion, growing 17% quarter-over-quarter and 19% year-over-year.
  • Global spending on all broadband product segments rose in 2Q14 from 1Q14: Ethernet FTTH soared 45%, DSL aggregation climbed 21%, and PON increased 15%. GPON equipment sales are up 19% sequentially in 2Q14, and up 44% from the same period a year ago, sparked by China.
  • VDSL ports grew to 6.6 million in 2Q14, as vectoring endeavors in EMEA continued to expand.
  • North America rebounded from a typically slow Q1, and broadband spending is expected to increase later this year when Connect America Fund (CAF) projects get underway.
