Fixed Operators in Asia-Pacific Put Their Future in the Hands of Fiber Networks, Pyramid Finds
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Asia-Pacific’s total fiber subscriptions are expected to nearly triple from 73.5m in 2011 to reach 204.9m by 2016, creating an edge for fixed operators to better compete against both the cable providers and mobile operators in a fixed environment, according to a new report from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).
Fixed Operators in Asia-Pacific Put Their Future in the Hands of Fiber Networks outlines the competitive landscape in the broadband space in Asia-Pacific, highlighting the dynamics among fixed operators, mobile operators and MSOs. Pyramid Research then examines how a next-generation infrastructure such as FTTx can help fixed operators enhance their service offerings now and in the future. Pyramid Research also discusses the social and environmental benefits that fiber enables. The report concludes with two case studies highlighting successful fiber deployments.
“Fiber is the future for fixed operators in Asia-Pacific, and it’s an investment none can overlook,” says Daniel Yu, Associate Manager at Pyramid Research. A nationwide fiber deployment has great social and environmental impacts that can benefit fixed operators in the long term. By improving the flow of information and extending the reach of information, a fiber network can enhance the educational and healthcare systems for the country, consequently increasing the country’s competitiveness and economic output. As the underprivileged become more sophisticated, with more spending power, it opens up new business opportunities for fixed operators. “Also, a next-generation fiber network requires less energy to operate, thus reducing the carbon footprint and consequently lowering opex for fixed operators,” he adds.
