Access Equipment Revenue Takes a Hit in the First Quarter, According to Dell’Oro Group
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, first quarter revenue for Access equipment (Cable + DSL + PON) including infrastructure equipment and CPE declined 8 percent sequentially after surging to a record level in the fourth quarter. All technology segments showed sequential declines for both revenue and shipments with the exception of Cable CPE which had strong growth both sequentially and over the year-ago period.
“Typical seasonal weakness was exacerbated by several factors including lower PON shipments to China after strong year-end budget spending, the economic uncertainly in Europe and a slow start by North American service providers,” said Steve Nozik, Principal Analyst of Access research at Dell’Oro Group. “Cable CPE was the exception with growth driven by users upgrading to high bandwidth DOCSIS 3.0 service for which new devices are required.” Nozik added.
The report shows that in the first quarter, Cisco, with near record shipments, was the lead vendor in terms of Cable CPE unit shipments. Arris was next with its strongest shipment quarter in over a year followed by Netgear which saw its Cable CPE shipments reach a record level.
