A new report by Dell’Oro Group shows that penetration of higher functioned cable consumer premise equipment (CPE) including DOCSIS 3.0 enabled devices, as well as those that have embedded wireless LAN, is rapidly increasing as shipments for CPE bearing these features doubled over the year-ago period during the third quarter of 2011.

“With costs for DOCSIS 3.0 CPE declining, a trend is emerging where operators are making these devices standard and not just purchasing them for subscribers who pay for higher bandwidth DOCSIS 3.0 service,” said Tam Dell’Oro, president of Dell’Oro Group, in a statement. “Historically, cable operators were reluctant to be involved in setting up subscriber’s home networks and left it up to subscribers to purchase their own stand-alone wireless routers. However, due to subscriber demand, competition, increased functionality, and lower costs for integrated Cable CPE with Wireless LAN, operators are increasingly providing these devices to their subscribers.”

The report shows that in the third quarter, ARRIS was the lead vendor in terms of total cable CPE unit shipments, followed by Cisco, Motorola Mobility, Technicolor and Ubee Interactive.
