“The transition to 10 Gbps fiber technologies is now a global phenomenon,” said Jeff Heynen, Research Director, Broadband Access and Home Networking. “The strength of 10 Gbps EPON and XGS-PON equipment in the quarter helped to offset continued weakness in cable CCAP spending, as major multiple-system operators’ focus on deploying purchased capacity,” explained Heynen.

Following are additional highlights from the 2Q 2019 Broadband Access and Home Networking Quarterly Report:

Total DSL port shipments increased 3 percent Y/Y, with VDSL Profile 35b ports increasing 29 percent, and Gfast ports increasing 42 percent.
Total cable access concentrator revenue decreased 40 percent Y/Y to $237 Million, driven once again by a slowdown in CCAP license purchases in North America.
