Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 4th quarter 2013 (4Q13) and year-end CMTS, CCAP, and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers report, which tracks cable broadband equipment and subscribers.
“The pent-up demand for new CCAP (converged cable access platform)-capable equipment is evident in the early volume deployments of CCAP gear, and we expect the upward trend in combined CMTS and CCAP channel shipments to continue as operators prepare their networks for DOCSIS 3.1 and potential remote PHY (physical layer) architectures,” notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.
Heynen adds: “Casa Systems had an outstanding fourth quarter shipping CCAP equipment globally, but it wasn’t enough to overtake perennial leaders Cisco and Arris. However, these vendors should now be on notice, as Casa’s made inroads and will continue to make this market more dynamic.”
CMTS, CCAP, AND EDGE QAM MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- 4Q13 marks the highest number of combined CMTS and CCAP upstream and downstream DOCSIS channel shipments on record, owing largely to a 192% sequential jump in CCAP channel shipments
- Despite an 11% revenue bump in 4Q13, the combined worldwide CMTS, CCAP, and edge QAM market was down 8% in 2013 from the previous year, dropping to $1.3 billion
- CMTS channel price erosion in the early part of 2013 was the primary reason for the revenue decline, notwithstanding record levels of CMTS and CCAP channel shipments
- Harmonic is the edge QAM revenue leader in 4Q13 and for the full year 2013
- Infonetics Research forecasts the global CMTS, CCAP, and edge QAM market to reach $1.7 billion in 2018, a 5-year compound annual growth rate of 5% from 2013 to 2108

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
