  PON Rallies Broadband Aggregation Market in Q2, Reports Infonetics Research

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- September 4, 2013

Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and
analysis from its 2^nd quarter 2013 (2Q13) PON, FTTH, and DSL Aggregation
Equipment and Subscribers report.

ANALYST NOTE

“Thanks to increases in PON equipment spending across the globe—particularly
Gigabit PON (GPON)—the broadband aggregation equipment market bounced back in
the second quarter,” notes Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access
and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

Heynen adds: “In the EMEA region, PON equipment revenue jumped 71% over the
previous quarter, aided largely by projects in Russia that boosted the revenue
of Huawei, ZTE, Alcatel-Lucent and ECI, the primary suppliers of GPON
equipment to Russian operators.”

2Q13 BROADBAND AGGREGATION MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *The global broadband aggregation market (PON, FTTH, and DSL equipment)
    grew 6% sequentially in 2Q13, to $1.6 billion
  *In the critical Chinese market, spending on GPON equipment was up again in
    2Q13, as China Unicom and China Telecom continue to roll out GPON-based
    FTTH and now FTTB
  *Total revenue for broadband aggregation gear in EMEA (Europe, Middle East,
    Africa) rebounded nicely in 2Q13, though DSL equipment revenue slumped to
    its lowest level ever
  *North America also bounced back from a lackluster 1^st quarter, but
    Ethernet PON spending dipped 8% after a 240% gain in 1Q13; even so,
    shipments of EPON gear to cable operators for business services based on
    DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON) continue unabated
  *Broadband aggregation market share leaders Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, and ZTE
    held onto the top 3 spots in 2Q13, while ECI Telecom and Adtran showed
    strong growth
  *Operators in Western Europe are forgoing large-scale FTTH rollouts in
    favor of VDSL2: Belgacom, KPN, British Telecom, France Telecom, and
    Deutsche Telekom have been joined by Turk Telecom, Telekom Austria, and
    others deploying VDSL2
