Research and Markets: Global Broadband Aggregation Equipment Market 2011-2015: Challenges Faced Is the Significant Decline in Demand for DSL Connections

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t8rr8q/global_broadband) has announced the addition of the "Global Broadband Aggregation Equipment Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Broadband Aggregation Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 10.8 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the high bandwidth requirements. The Global Broadband Aggregation Equipment market has also been witnessing high growth in the APAC region. However, the significant decline in demand for DSL could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Alcatel-Lucent, Fiberhome Networks Inc., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., and ZTE Corp.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Adtran Inc., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Sumitomo Electric Networks Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Calix Network Inc., Freescale Semiconductor Inc., Ericsson Inc., PMC-Sierra Inc., Tellabs Inc., and UTStarcom Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''In 2011, the APAC region accounted for over 60 percent of the passive optical network (PON) equipment shipped across the globe. Although Japan and South Korea are approaching saturation, many countries in this region including China, Singapore, and Australia are still making significant investments to replace existing copper lines with fiber lines. The Government of China provides full support to implement this technology, and this support is expected to be a trend in the near future. The penetration in Australia is expected to grow rapidly in the next four years, thus increasing the growth rate of the PON market in the APAC region.''

According to the report, one of the primary reasons for the increased adoption of broadband aggregation equipment is the need to support the increasing demand for bandwidth capacity. Currently, there is high demand for data services such as video streaming and online gaming, which require high bandwidth. Digital subscriber lines (DSLs) provide low bandwidth, therefore telecom operators are shifting toward PON solutions, which provide higher bandwidth capacity. Thus, the growing adoption of PON has led to increased demand for fixed-line broadband equipment.
