Infonetics: Record Year for GPON in China; VDSL Shipments Outstrip ADSL for First Time Ever

Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and preliminary analysis from its 4th quarter 2013 (4Q13) and year-end PON, FTTH, and DSL Aggregation Equipment and Subscribers report.


“2013 ended up being a strong year for fixed broadband spending, driven by the continued growth of GPON and vectoring-capable VDSL gear. Competition, over-the-top (OTT) and multiscreen video, and national broadband goals remain the primary drivers for fixed broadband investment,” notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.


  • Globally, sales of broadband aggregation equipment (DSL, PON, and Ethernet FTTH) grew 4.6% sequentially in 4Q13, to $1.95 billion
  • For the full year 2013, worldwide broadband aggregation equipment revenue totaled $6.96 billion, a 1.6% increase over 2012
  • 2013 capped a record year for GPON in China, with revenue increasing 64% from the previous year as China Unicom and China Telecom continued deployments of GPON-based FTTH
  • VDSL shipments surpassed ADSL for the first time in 2013 and now make up over half of all DSL ports shipped, though this was not enough to lift overall DSL aggregation market on a year-over-year basis
  • The top 3 overall broadband aggregation revenue leaders are once again Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, and ZTE

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Successful transition from traditional IT to cloud computing requires three key ingredients: an IT architecture that allows companies to extend their internal best practices to the cloud, a cost point that allows economies of scale, and automated processes that manage risk exposure and maintain regulatory compliance with industry regulations (FFIEC, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA). The unique combination of VMware, the IBM Cloud, and Cloud Raxak, a 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor in IT Automation, provides a co...
