  Infonetics: Huge Market Potential for Ethernet over Coax in China; Cablecos
  Prepare for Broadband Fight

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- January 22, 2013

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from a new report,
Ethernet over Coax (EoC) Equipment and Subscribers in China, which tracks
market size and subscribers for EoC master/headend and modem hardware.

ANALYST NOTE

“The number of TV subscribers in China is 200 million and growing fast,
presenting a huge opportunity for cable TV operators there to become
significant fixed broadband service providers, challenging China Telecom and
China Unicom,” notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and
pay TV at Infonetics Research. “Given China’s unique multi-dwelling
unit-dominated environment, cable operators are using Ethernet over Coax
technology to quickly roll out broadband services to compete with fiber
deployments.”

Heynen continues: “But the cable companies are in the process of consolidating
and retooling, and given the organizational and operational challenges that
lay ahead, they’ll want to spread EoC rollouts over a longer period of time as
they sort out which technologies to use, which markets to target first, and
how to best market services they have little to no experience providing.”

EOC MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *Infonetics forecasts the market for Ethernet over Coax (EoC) equipment in
    China, including master/headend units and modems, to grow at a 33%
    compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2011 to 2016
  *EoC modem shipments are expected to grow sixfold by 2016, when they will
    make up around 70% of total EoC revenue
  *There are currently 3.7 million EoC subscribers in China, growing to
    nearly 24 million by 2016
