REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 07, 2017 – According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, G.fast revenue growth is forecast to grow almost 600 percent in 2019 as operators complete testing and trialing G.fast amendment 3 chipsets and systems. We believe 2019 will be the year of G.fast, significantly impacting the future worldwide Broadband Access market, which includes PON, DSL and Cable.
“G.fast is off to a slow start so far but we think it will ramp in 2019,” said Alam Tamboli, Senior Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “Operators are holding off on massive deployments throughout their networks until they have more hands-on time with amendment 3 chipsets and systems, which will be available in early 2018. Furthermore, many operators that wish to deploy G.fast into larger buildings via FTTB architectures are waiting for 32 or larger port units to be tested more thoroughly. Momentum will continue through at least the rest of our forecast horizon as we anticipate that G.fast revenue will account for over a third of the overall DSL market by 2021,” Tamboli added.
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 08, 2017 – According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, worldwide demand for Edge Routers and Carrier Ethernet Switches are forecast to drive modest growth for the overall Service Provider (SP) & Carrier Ethernet Switch market through 2021. The SP Core Router market is expected to decline slightly over the same time period.
“In the near term, operators will increase capacity of their IP router and switch networks to accommodate traffic from fixed broadband access networks,” said Alam Tamboli, Senior Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “However, in 2019, we will see increased demand for mobile backhaul networks, as operators actively build out their 5G networks. Higher capacities and topology changes required for 5G networks will lead to an upgrade cycle of today’s mobile backhaul networks,” Tamboli explained.
Highlights from the Router & Carrier Ethernet Switch 5-Year Forecast Report:
- The SP Core Router market continue to grow in 2017 as demand in China drives the market. Starting in 2018, we expect a shrinking market as projects in China are completed and IP traffic patterns continue to shift to more localized data sources.
- 100 GE port shipments will experience double-digit growth every year through our forecast period. 400 GE port shipments are expected to begin in 2019.
