“Service providers in China spent a staggering $715 million on GPON equipment last year, and this is just the tip of the iceberg,” notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst/Broadband Access and Video at Infonetics Research. “This market holds massive potential for fiber-to-the-home, with around 300 million Chinese citizens expected to migrate to urban areas over the next 15 years, definitely making China the dominant region for FTTH deployments. Brazil is also a real bright spot for GPON activity. We expect long-term strength there driven by a solid economy, increased competition from cable operators, and the upcoming World Cup and Olympics events.” Huawei is the revenue market share leader for 2.5G GPON in China, Russia, and Brazil; Alphion leads in India.
