broadband infrastructure

Worldwide broadband customer premise equipment (CPE) revenue dropped to $2.8bln in the 1st quarter of 2015, decreasing 2% sequentially, while unit shipments stayed flat at 54mln as service providers continued to expand their fixed broadband service capabilities in the highly-competitive CPE market, according to IHS. On a YOY basis, global broadband CPE unit shipments were up 9% in 1Q as operators continued to invest in premium CPE. Both DOCSIS 3.1 and gigabit broadband are expected to add momentum to the cable and DSL CPE market, said the research firm’s director Jeff Heynen. As service providers use mobile broadband to complement fixed broadband deployments, use cases for mobile broadband routers are expected to grow considerably, sending unit shipments to more than 622K in 2019, the research firm said.
