Infonetics Research: Cable Broadband Market Primed for Double-Digit Recovery in 2013

CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 4th quarter 2012 (4Q12) and year-end CMTS and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers market size, market share, and forecast report, which tracks cable broadband equipment and subscribers.

ANALYST NOTE

"Though 2012 was a down year for cable broadband, the stage is set for a strong 2013," notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "Cable operators worldwide have a number of bandwidth-hungry applications on tap that will drive CMTS and edge QAM channel growth throughout the year, including DOCSIS 3.0, multiscreen services via the deployment of new video gateways, and carrier WiFi (News - Alert) services."

Heynen adds: "We're expecting CMTS and edge QAM revenue to grow more than 20% in 2013."

CMTS AND EDGE QAM MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • For the full year 2012, CMTS and edge QAM revenue decreased 15%, to $1.39 billion
  • Declining ASPs and channel shipments edged the global CMTS and edge QAM market down for the 3rd consecutive quarter in 4Q12, as revenue fell 1% sequentially, to $284 million
  • North America bucked the global trend, notching a 7% increase in CMTS and edge QAM revenue in 4Q12 from 3Q12
  • Cisco held onto its perennial #1 CMTS revenue market share position in 4Q12, though #2 ARRIS, the leader in channel shipments, grew its share by 6 percentage points
  • In the edge QAM segment, Cisco edged out Harmonic (News - Alert) to claim the top spot for the 1st time ever in 4Q12; even so, Harmonic closed out 2012 as the edge QAM leader

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
