Campbell, CALIFORNIA, May 28, 2014—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014 (1Q14) CMTS, CCAP, and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers report, which tracks cable broadband equipment and subscribers.
“In a dramatic shift, the vast majority of cable operator spending in the first quarter of 2014 (1Q14) went toward new CCAP (converged cable access platform) equipment instead of the bedrock of cable broadband, CMTS,” notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. “Cable operators are on a steady path of adding significant channel capacity as part of DOCSIS 3.0, IP video, business service, carrier WiFi, and forthcoming DOCSIS 3.1 rollouts.”
CMTS, CCAP, AND EDGE QAM MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- The combined global CMTS, CCAP, and edge QAM market was down 6% in 1Q14 from 4Q13, to $332 million
- CCAP revenue jumped 177% sequentially in 1Q14, while CMTS revenue dropped 76%
- 1Q14 marked another record quarter for CMTS and CCAP channel shipments, owing mainly to a 229% sequential jump in CCAP channel shipments worldwide
- Nowhere is the shift to CCAP being felt more acutely than in the North American market, where quarterly revenue dropped 13% despite CMTS and CCAP channel shipments jumping 20%
- Arris took over the lead for worldwide CMTS and CCAP revenue in 1Q14; Cisco finished 2nd
