Infonetics: Investment in high-bandwidth services pushes DOCSIS channel shipments up 95% YoY in 3Q

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - November 24, 2014) - Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 3rd quarter 2014 (3Q14) CCAP, CMTS, and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers report, which tracks cable broadband equipment and subscribers.

ANALYST NOTE
"Though down a bit sequentially, total upstream and downstream DOCSIS channels were still at 1.2 million in the third quarter of 2014 (3Q14), and up an incredible 95% over what was shipped globally just a year ago. This reflects just how much the cable companies are investing to support higher-bandwidth services such as IP video and to compete with fiber," notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

3Q14 CABLE BROADBAND MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Worldwide revenue for CCAP, CMTS, edge QAM, and CMC equipment totaled $445 million in 3Q14, an 8% sequential increase
  • Underscoring the tremendous shift from CMTS to CCAP platforms over the last few quarters, CCAP revenue increased 7% in 3Q14 from 2Q14, to $360 million
  • Nowhere is the current shift to CCAP being felt more acutely than in North America, where cable operators are focusing on deploying new hardware
  • Arris, Casa Systems, Cisco, and Harmonic (in alphabetical order) held steady at the top of the combined CCAP, CMTS, and CMC market in 3Q14
