Infonetics: Nearly 90 million DOCSIS 3.0 CPE units shipped over last 12 quarters

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - January 06, 2015) - Infonetics Research, a technology market research firm, today released excerpts from its 3rd quarter 2014 (3Q14) Broadband CPE and Subscribers: PON, FTTH, Cable, DSL, and LTE report.

In the report, Infonetics, now part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), tracks digital subscriber line (DSL), cable, fiber to the home (FTTH), and fixed long term evolution (LTE) customer premises equipment (CPE), residential gateways, and broadband subscribers.

"The current momentum behind DOCSIS 3.0 continued again in 3Q14 and shows no signs of stopping. Cable operators worldwide are using the technology to gain broadband subscriber share. Even if MSOs aren't currently offering DOCSIS 3.0 services, prices on the D3 devices have come down to the point where it makes sense to move forward with them," notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.


  • The global broadband CPE market totaled $2.6 billion in 3Q14, an increase of 6% from 2Q14
  • A cumulative 89.1 million DOCSIS 3.0 CPE units were shipped over the last 12 quarters, from 4Q11 to 3Q14
  • In 3Q14, DOCSIS 3.0 gateway revenue is up 14% sequentially
  • Connected home and multiscreen services continue to proliferate as operators increase the number of services they offer to subscribers and improve margins
    -- As a result, an increasing number of intelligent, video-capable gateways are being shipped globally to support these advanced services
  • The fixed LTE CPE segment is beginning to rebound, and the North American market is expected by Infonetics to be a primary growth engine over the next 2 years as AT&T begins to roll out fixed LTE services to rural households
