Infonetics forecasts DSL aggregation market to hit $10.5B in 2009

CAMPBELL, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2006 -- Annual worldwide DSL aggregation hardware revenue will grow 65% between 2005 and 2009 to $10.5 billion and port shipments will hit 204 million, predicts analyst firm Infonetics Research in its latest DSL Aggregation Hardware report.

The number of DSL subscribers jumped 27% between 2004 and 2005 to almost 126 million, and is expected to grow another 96% between 2005 and 2009, when it will reach 245 million worldwide.

"The worldwide DSL aggregation market continued its healthy growth in the fourth quarter and throughout 2005, as service providers expanded their footprint and bandwidth in preparation for the delivery of high-revenue IPTV and video services to their subscribers," said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst at Infonetics Research. "We are seeing phenomenal growth in IP DSLAMs and broadband loop carriers, both of which will serve as the primary platforms for the delivery of triple-play services in the years to come. Volume shipments of VDSL are beginning in earnest and will drive dramatic growth around the world beginning in 2007."
